World’s Largest Artwork Created on Frozen Lake Baikal!

A team of eight people committed to walking in circles for art, including a documentary filmmaker and a photographer. Given the ethereal nature of the piece, it’s not surprising how important documentation is to the process. After all, ice  is one of the most potent artistic materials  of our modern age . The team lived in a yurt in the center of the lake, building a fire on the lake bed every night (it would re-freeze every morning). Though the artwork melted away in May, the experience is chronicled on The Anthropologist , a site for promoting new work by Anthropologie. Yep. The folks who put together those massive store displays sent eight people to Siberia to draw circles. And thanks for that.
