A short video documentary of an interventionist performance art work and political action created by media artist Joseph DeLappe. The Union of Concerned Scientists estimates that a 100 by 100 mile square solar farm in the American Southwest would be "more than enough to meet the country's entire energy demand."
From May 19th to 29th, 2013, in a work to symbolically identify a geographical area large enough for such a solar farm, DeLappe road a long-tail bicycle 460 miles dragging pieces of chalk to physically draw a line encircling the Federal lands that include the Nevada Test Site, "Area 51", Yucca Mountain and Nellis Air Force Range.
The work is intended as an act of political protest, a "demonstration" and a speculative design project suggesting the repurposing of the largest military installation in the world located in southern Nevada, just north of Las Vegas.
