Near the coast of the Red Sea and thick within Sahara desert is a spiraling landmark known as Desert Breath. Given its impressive size and seemingly perfect symmetry, it would not be too irrational to think it was placed there by alien visitors.
But typically, when something on this planet seems alien, it just means that an incredible design team was behind it. The same can be said for Desert Breath. Seventeen years ago, the D.A.ST. Arteam, including Danae Stratou (the installation artist), Alexandra Stratou (the industrial designer and architect), and Stella Constantides (the architect) ventured into the desert to create art on an epic scale. Though erosion is inevitable and has altered their work over the years, the site still looks remarkably similar to how it did upon completion. The slow deterioration has been said to be “an instrument to measure the passage of time”, and gives life and movement to an otherwise static work of art.
