A Land Art Installation In The Eastern Sahara

In 1997 the D.A.ST. Arteam completed the monumental piece Desert Breath, located between the Red Sea and a body of mountains in the Egyptian desert. The construction works both as a visual image from above and as a spiral pathway from the ground. It consists of 8.000 cubic-meters displaced sand which forms positive and negative conical volumes and describes the shape of “two interlocking spirals that move out from a common centre with a phase difference of 180 degrees in the same direction as rotation.” The centre, a 30 meter diameter vessel, was originally filled with water but as the years pass the piece continuously transforms and becomes one with the infinity of the desert.
