The most sustainable art ever

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Sand art was quite a new thing for me. In case you haven't heard of it yet, let me give you a short intro. The artists basically scratch in the sand. Only areas that are flooded by the tide are suitable for the designs. This form of land art is extremely sustainable and short-lived. It is sustainable, because the artists don't use any resources and short-lived as the next tide washes everything away...

Take a look at a couple of extraordinary examples here and let me know what you think of it!

Sand art is absolutely amazing! I have friends in Los Angeles who make breathtaking sand mandalas and Celtic knots, as well as more three-dimensional mandalas where they pile and carve the sand to make raised areas. I would love to live there and help them with it! 

 

This also reminds me of the sand experiments done with sound frequencies! (Sorry, it wouldn't let me embed the Youtube video right now so I linked instead. I'll look into that.)

Green art =)   That is awesome ... 

 

Being a photographer (by trade at one point, part time and for pleasure at present), I am 100% for digital distribution.  The chemicals involved in print photography are very concerning to me....

 

I am concerned regarding the impact that the manufacturing of my equipment has on the environment.  Oddly, my lenses are sand (or the glass originally was - and no, I don't use plastic optics) .... hmm
