220,000 polyethylene cubes. 70,000 square meters of fabric. 160 anchors. This is what went into famed artist Christo’s newest installation in Lake Iseo in northern Italy that lasted for a mere 16 days. Stretching almost 2 miles in total, the three walkways connected two towns and an island for the first time ever. In addition to the striking visual of the saffron-colored fabric stretching across the water and into the town, it allowed the estimated 1.2 million visitors to feel like they were walking over water, far out away from the town. To see the preparation, execution, and more of the finished product, head over to Christo’s website.
