And you thought those full-scale car sketches the trans guys did were big...Eric Nordenankar uses a GPS tracker and an extremely detailed set of delivery instructions to enlist DHL help in sketching his mug across the surface of planet earth. A little bedhead is in evidence up in the Arctic Ocean, but otherwise, nicely done.

UPDATE: Yes, it's a fake. After getting featured by Gizmodo, Hack A Day, CNET, Ze Frank, Design Observer and plenty of others, Nordenankar added the text "This is fictional work. DHL did not transport the GPS at any time" to the bottom of the page. This has since been amended by a similar message, in red, at the TOP of the page.
And yes, it did seem a little far fetched that a student could convince DHL to fly planes in loops off the coast of Madagascar, but we can't be too perturbed -- it was a pretty convincing "project."
