Desert Breath: Land Art Project by D.A.ST. Arteam

Published Feb 27, 2014

“Desert Breath” is a gigantic art installation in the Sahara desert created by D.A.ST. Arteam. The collective was founded in 1995 by Danae Stratou (installation artist) Alexandra Stratou and Stella Constantinides (architects), for the purpose of creating this amazing project.

“Desert Breath expands in an area of 100.000 m2, in the eastern Sahara desert bordering the Red Sea in El Gouna, Egypt. It is a site-specific work that generated out of our perception of the site itself. Its construction consists of the displacement of 8.000 m3 of sand formed so as to create precise positive and negative conical volumes. The conical volumes form two interlocking spirals that move out from a common centre with a phase difference of 180o degrees in the same direction of rotation. The centre is a 30-metre diameter vessel formed in a W-shaped section and filled with water to its rim.”
