Land Art in Egypt: The Beautiful Geometry of Desert Breath
Robert Smithson’s Spiral Jetty has a rival. Enlivening the Sahara Desert sands outside El Gouna in Egypt, the beautiful Desert Breath installation is a mind-blowing example of land art that has attracted art lovers since 1997. Designed by Danae Stratou, Alexandra Stratou and Stella Constantinides, the piece was dug by the D.A.S.T. Arteam in the sands near the Red Sea over two years. The spiral installation winds around a serene pool, covering a whopping 1 million square feet across the barren desert.
