Japanese artist Yassan Takahashi (above) recently broke his own Guinness World Record by creating the largest ever work of GPS art. Entitled "#PEACEonEarth", the work took the artist to 24 cities on six continents in a journey lasting 41 days. In the end, Yassan traveled more than 65,700 miles and enlisted the help of 107 people to create it.
Said the artist: “Right now, the world is embroiled with conflict. In a world like this, is there any way for one person to be heard above the chaos? After a long time of thinking, I thought of the…message.”
Japan Airlines Co. Ltd. helped to showcase the artist’s work through a mini-documentary called “PEACE on Earth: Look what I drew with 107 people around the world in 41 days | #PEACEonEarth #GPSart.” View the short film here:
