On 11 April 2002, the Belgian artist Francis Alÿs invites 500 volunteers in the suburbs of Lima, Peru, to equip themselves with shovels and move a sand dune near the capital. For the art installation Faith Moves Mountains, the helpers shifted a 200-metre high and 500-metre long dune by ten centimetres.
