A parallel Worlds

Friday June 13 2008 / Art & Design

This drawing created a big buzz on the internet recently. Apparently, an 'artist' called Antti Laitinent shipped a briefcase with a GPS tracker around the world with DHL with precise touting instructions and this drawing was the result.

Unfortunately, that was not quite true - well the story was, but not the drawing.

Antti Laitinent (an advertising student) did send this GPS tracking equipped briefcase around with DHL . . . as a publicity campaign for DHL.

The resulting image, a self portrait, turned out like this.

Still, it was a great idea which worked: it did generate a lot of noise about DHL and it must be the world's biggest self portrait.
