Jim Denevan’s Frozen Art on Lake Baikal, Siberia

We’ve featured giant
sand artwork
by Jim Denevan before
on Neatorama, but the artist is back. This time, Jim and his team traveled
all the way to Lake Baikal, Siberia, in order to create the world’s largest
work of art.

Denevan, a sort of Andy Goldsworthy of the American West, and a
team of plucky helpers proceeded to mark 9 square miles of ice with
giant circles based on the Fibonacci sequence. The result, captured
in the photographs above, is in a way less impressive than the process
itself: Crew members had to brave sub-zero temperatures and hurricane-force
winds to realize Denevan’s vision. Some of the gusts were so strong,
they actually blew away the art work.
