Christo Running Fence Installation Art

Christo and Jeanne Claude are notorious for denying any deeper meaning to their artwork, claiming they are simply attempting to beautify the planet – and that their work is all the more powerful for engaging natural environments in a temporary way. Over a million square feet of material went into this relatively early installation work – as well as a lot of hassling and haggling with governmental workers and land owners (requiring the pressure of nearly a dozen lawyers to finally push the project through). The results? A simple, stark white fence that meanders at a height of over fifteen feet for a length of over twenty five miles before finally terminating strangely into the sea. (Source)
