#Mastaba Day with crew @___jodes @breezy_ally @tokko1105 @oh_henry [The Mastaba is #Christo first major public, outdoor work in the UK. Christo’s temporary structure consists of 7,506 horizontally stacked barrels on a floating platform in Serpentine Lake. The total weight of this 20 meters (65.5 ft) high x 30 meters (90 ft) wide x 40 meters (130 ft) long artwork is only 500 tons... A further version of the London Mastaba, designed for the deserts outside Abu Dhabi, would be almost six times larger – the biggest sculpture in the history of the world. But who knows if it will ever happen?. Christo is nothing if not democratic. From wrapping the Reichstag in Berlin to allowing people to “walk on the water” between two islands in Lake Iseo (Italy), each of his spectacular installations are freely accessible. Christo (and his late wife Jeanne-Claude; they used to work as a creative duo) have repeatedly denied that their projects contain any deeper meaning than their immediate aesthetic impact. The purpose of their art, they contend, is simply to create works of art for joy and beauty and to create new ways of seeing familiar landscapes.
