Desert Breath

by

Desert Breath 1

Located near the Red Sea in El Gouna, Egypt, Desert Breath is an impossibly immense land art installation dug into the sands of the Sahara desert by the D.A.ST. Arteam back in 1997.

It reminded me of and predates Louis Sachar‘s 1998 novel “Holes” that I read as a parent at the insistence of my youngun’s. I liked it, and the movie wasn’t bad either.
