In the artist’s own words: “We arrived in the desert at night, so we had no idea what we would see when the sun came up and we wandered out of our tents into the dunes. Just after sunrise the whole camp woke up and started fanning out in every direction with the help of local guides, mesmerized by the endlessness of the sea of sand dunes. My friends from all over the United States carved all kinds of messages into the sand among our footprints, and I thought it was only appropriate for me to make Ohio’s temporary mark there on the edge of human civilization.”
