Desert Breath - A Beautiful Art Installation in the Sahara Desert

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 created by the D.A.ST. Arteam in 1997. Located between the sea and a body of mountains at the point where the immensity of the sea meets the immensity of the desert, the work functions on two different levels in terms of viewpoint: from above as a visual image, and from the ground, walking the spiral pathway, a physical experience. Desert Breath still exists becoming through its slow disintegration, an instrument to measure the passage of time.
