Sandcastle Builder Calvin Seibert Creates Incredibly Precise Geometric Sculptures Out of Sand

by , 12/04/12


Influenced by Gottfried Bohm and and Aldo Rossi, Calvin Seibert transforms particles of sand into strikingly precise geometric shapes. Each sandcastle emerges from the rough surrounding terrain as a smooth, three-dimensional structure. Although they look amazingly solid, each is a wave away from total dissolution. Taking about a day to build each piece, Seibert uses whatever free time he can manage to add to his collection of photographs.

“I always have these ideas that I want to try but somehow in the attempt to get something done by the end of the day I turn towards my old standby solutions. I need to spend 6 weeks on the beach all at once. As it is I only get a day here and there and go whole years without building anything. If I could manage that I might get somewhere new.” he says.

To see more of his series of geometric gems, head over to the artist’s Flickr page.
