Castles Made of Sand

Check out these amazing sand sculptures by artist Carl Jara:

I adore these. I love the impermanent nature of this style of art. I have often felt that way about street art as well. So much love and craftsmanship is put into these works knowing that they will only last briefly. I think in a way it makes it more magical.

I know in doing TiW, I’ve had to start looking at placing stickers more as performance rather than a static piece of art. I am sad when they are taken down, but know that it just makes it that much more special for the people who did see it. Plus they get immortalized on this site.

Anyway, amaze yourself by checking out the site.
