I was browsing through Flickr and I found some amazing Modern Geometric Sandcastles by Calvin Seibert. I love them and I am sure you guys will too.
About Calvin Seibert
Calvin Seibert is a professional sculptor who will occasionally erect several modern and highly geometric marvels right from the sands of beaches. These temporary sand structures are inspired by certain aspects of the modernism architectural movement. Here is a quote on the process fro the artist himself :
Building “sandcastles” is a bit of a test. 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. In my mind they are always mash-ups of influences and ideas. I see a castle, a fishing village, a modernist sculpture, a stage set for the oscars all at once. When they are successful they don’t feel contained or finished. They become organic machines that might grow and expand. I am always adding just one more bit and if time allowed I wouldn’t stop.
