ON MARCH 7 1997, THE CONSTRUCTION OF "DESERT BREATH" WAS COMPLETED. AT SAME MOMENT THE WORK WAS TURNED OVER TO THE FORCES OF NATURE, TO BEGIN THE SLOW PROCESS OF ITS ABSORBITION, BY THE LANDSCAPE THAT GAVE BIRTH TO IT. THE SYSTEMATIC DOCUMENTATION OF THIS PROCESS IS AS IMPORTANT TO "DESERT BREATH" AS THE DISPLACEMENT OF SAND THAT WAS USED TO CREATE IT. THE INSTALLATION BECOMES THROUGH ITS SLOW DISINTEGRATION, AN INSTRUMENT TO MEASURE THE PASSAGE OF TIME.

After 12 years...

I saw it on the Google maps - unbeliveable. And then I notice your explanation - thanks for sharing!

А как это сделано? Это люди или марсиане?
