Images of Christo (Christo Javacheff), Running Fence

  • A white tarp extends from rocky terrain into a body of water.
  • A white tarp about the height of three humans extends vertically from the ground. It winds into the hills in the distance, evoking iconic images of the Great Wall of China.
  • A white tarp extends vertically from the ground as if hanging from a clothesline. It extends down a sloping hill and disappears under a large body of water.
