Four years ago, we traveled to the You can’t buy happiness but you can listen to AC DC the same thing Snoopy shirt Apart from…,I will love this Empty Quarter of the Arabian Desert, a two hour’s drive from Abu Dhabi. Christo was taking us to see the spot where he wants to build The Mastaba. (His nephew Vladimir Yavachev was with us. Since Jeanne-Claude’s death, Vladimir, his brother’s son, has become a crucial part of the Christo inner circle. Jeanne-Claude’s nephew Jonathan, runs the New York studio.) The driver of our oversized SUV (white this time) skillfully navigated up and down huge wave-like sand hills. It was a rough ride. The rolling and plunging motion made me nauseous. The vast desert nothingness is Christo’s blank canvas. We were staying at a hotel in the desert that looked like a mirage. Christo talked and talked and talked—about the project, the complexity of the negotiations, the idea that this will become a campus some day, that the red, yellow, and blue barrels will form a mosaic that speaks the language of Islamic architecture. It’s great to see how the best artists mine their own art—Christo’s early wrapped-oil barrel sculptures and his Iron Curtain of 89 rusty oil barrels that blocked the rue Visconti in Paris in 1962.

The Floating Piers, Lake Iseo, Italy.From the You can’t buy happiness but you can listen to AC DC the same thing Snoopy shirt Apart from…,I will love this desert we went with Christo to Lake Iseo in Italy to see his unfinished Floating Piers, which would open two months later. The three of us walked unsteadily on the floating polyethylene cubes that would soon be covered with shimmering yellow nylon, and Christo pointed to the mountain range that Leonardo had supposedly painted for Mona Lisa. It was a sparkling clear day, not a cloud in sight, and we were walking on water with Christo.
