I was totally stunned to see this artwork in sand by Jim Denevan. I couldn’t help but wonder what technique he used in order to successfully mark the evenly spaced disc in the sand. Personally, I would find it easier to build a beautiful sand castle than to create a gigantic disc such as this!
About the Sand1 in Disc Form
Jim’s geometric sand art are made with little more than rakes and sticks and can cover miles of California beach during the low tide period. This masterpiece took many hours to complete but can often disappear much quicker as the incoming tide erases them. This is an impermanent sand drawing and that’s what makes this artwork extra special.
