looking at

I picked up this new book documenting Jim Denevan's large scale drawing on Lake Baikal in Siberia. (I also got to meet him and had him sign my copy!) It's full of gorgeous photos and includes a film of the project. I was so inspired by a number of things: the sheer beauty of the drawing, the enormous scale of the project, the collaborative nature of it all and the willingness to create something so ephemeral. The film delves a bit into what it all means to the artist as well. Learn more about the project here.
