Siberia! (Bet you didn’t see that coming.)
It’s all thanks to partnership between The Anthropologist and US artist Jim Denevan who was commissioned to carry out a very specific mission: Find the world’s largest lake and create the world’s largest work of art onto it.
It turned out, that in order to fulfill that criteria, Jim Denevan and his team had to venture off into the depths of the Siberian countryside. Once there, he and his team created a beautiful array of ginormous circles (all based on the famous Fibonacci sequence) that spanned a staggering 9 square miles across the frozen lake and sheet ice. It was no easy task, creating artwork on that scale whilst facing -30c temperature and razor-sharp icy winds at hurricane-force levels – but they banded together long enough to achieve their goal.
Below are some photos from the work itself, although The Anthropologist also have a collection of drawings, behind the scenes shots and even bit of film from the entire experience – you can check all that out for free right here
