Biggest Drawing in the World

The Biggest Drawing in the World, a self portrait of the creator, was made by sending a suitcase with a GPS tracker around to various sites, using DHL. (via Core 77)

: Lots of people are calling BS on this one, including Atanas, who insists the sailing routes are bogus, and others, claiming the GPS won't transmit through the case. Fooled by a viral for DHL? Even so, not a bad one, as viral videos go.

Update 2: Yup, it's BS. What I find disappointing about this is that it could easily have been real—sure, the lines might not have been as precise or expressive, but he could have done it. I'll bet DHL offers to foot the bill. But come to think of it, I don't know how I feel about all that carbon for one project like this.
