It Was a Hoax

Remember that youtube post I did the other day of the gps drawn picture - FAKE.

Erik Nordenankar's self-portrait – which straddles the entire globe – was allegedly created by tracing the route taken by the specially-primed case on its 55-day journey around the world.

The artist claimed he gave the case to DHL, the package delivery firm, with exact co-ordinates detailing the stages of its tour.

When the package was returned to Stockholm he claimed he downloaded the GPS's route memory to produce the enormous drawing above. It is composed of a single 110,00km-long line that passes through six continents and 62 countries.

But after bloggers pointed out holes in Nordenankar's claim, DHL confirmed to the Telegraph that the artwork was an "entirely fictional project".(Full Story at telegraph)
