Jim Denevan: Earth Sand Ice

Jim Denevan makes temporary drawings on sand earth and ice that are eventually erased by waves and weather.

Jim and his crew journey to Lake Baikal in southwestern Siberia, and over the course of two weeks they create a land art installation spanning nine square miles across the lake’s frozen surface.


In his quest to venerate a body of water deemed sacred by many in the region, Denevan broke his own record for creating the world’s largest artwork, originally set in the Nevada desert in 2009.


As funny as it is dramatic, ‘Art Hard’ is a documentary about a man’s artistic process, his comedic nature, his struggle to stay sane, and the people who help him do so.
