The biggest self portrait in the world

gps-drawing1.jpg

At first glance, one might simply be impressed by the “single line” self portrait that Erik Nordenanker created – but it’s how it was created that truly makes this a unique piece of art. As reported in Gizmodo, what Erik did was place a GPS device in a briefcase and mail it, via DHS and with precise travel instructions – it is the path the device took that created the drawing you see above. You can find all the details, including the particulars of the travel plan, here. If there is such a thing as the opposite of an art critic I am probably it, but it certainly seems like a relevant piece of work in this age of globalization – right down to the quite wasteful consumption that enabled the “drawing” to be created :) .

At the end of the page at http://www.biggestdrawingintheworld.com/drawing.aspx it says “This is fictional work. DHL did not transport the GPS at any time”
