Strange. If you read the article and watch the video, it's all explained right in the link you posted.

Waste of resources is what it is.

Heirarchy of Art, from best to worst:

Extremely Bad
Plain Bad
Not Art

Good art is better than great art because there's more of. David is an amazing statue, but there's only so many times you can see it before yawn.

Good (Calvin and Hobbes)
Great (da Vinci)
Extremely Bad (xkcd)

Plain Bad (Picasso portraits)

Smitty, if you'd read the article attached, you'd already know what it is...

It's an art installation. Like Spiral Jetty but better.

Its name is Desert Breath and it was finished in 1997 by the D.A.ST. Arteam, composed by Danae Stratou (installation artist), Alexandra Stratou (industrial designer & architect), Stella Constantinides (architect).

Just so I can prepare is it Goauld, Wraith or Ori I should be concerned about?

I wonder if people who donated money to this also donate money to help homeless or hungry people. I'm sure a house or two could have been built with the time and money it took to build this.

It's probably just some weird alien-looking spiral in the desert.
2014-02-24 10:58:52 AM  
It's an art installation that isn't even 20 years old.

Now where to I collect my prize?
