a very very very large creative expression

June 25th, 2008


This is crazy…and it was made by a single person!!!

Jim Denevan made the world’s largest freehand drawing on a dry lake in Nevada. How big is it? Three mile across, which took 100 miles of walking to draw the pattern.

“It is really really big. My first attempt at a place so large. I think it represents about seven or eight days of walking”, says Devevan.

Even though esthetically it’s a welcome addition to the landscape, it is also a sort of a transient mark-like a cloud, or a river-bed.  Immense in its scope, and lasting only a moment in the large scale of things.When asked how long did this stupendous artwork last, Jim replied…”It was completely erased in a rainstorm the next week.  It felt strange to work so hard and not see the tide come in.  But rains did come which is sort of the same thing.”

    I love when people find the vision to think big. Really big.
