the biggest drawing in the world, created by GPS tracking & the help of express transportation company DHL. the pen was a briefcase containing a GPS device, being sent around the world. the paths the briefcase took around the globe became the strokes of the drawing. the giant strokes passed through 6 continents & 62 countries, becoming 110,664km long.
