Artist Takes Building Sandcastles To A Whole New Level

472

New York-based artist Calvin Seibert, 58, sculpts incredibly detailed geometric sand structures. For him, building modernist sandcastles is more than just a mere hobby. “Building “sandcastles” is a bit of a test,” Seibert writes on Flickr. “Nature will always be against you and time is always running out. Having to think fast and to bring it all together in the end is what I like about it. I rarely start with a plan, just a vague notion of trying to do something different each time. Once I begin building and forms take shape I can start to see where things are going and either follow that road or attempt to contradict it with something unexpected.”
