In 1969, Christo and Jeanne-Claude directed a team of mountain climbers, workers and volunteers in wrapping 2.5 kilometres of Sydney coastline with more than 90,000 square metres of fabric. It was not only the first Kaldor Public Art Project but one of the most important early environmental or land art works anywhere in the world and the largest single artwork that had ever been made. The maquette Packed Coast, One Million Square Feet, Project for Australia 1969 was designed to give an impression of what the project would look like. In this video, Christo discusses the project.
