If Frank Gehry Made Sand Castles (10 Photos)

 

Artist Calvin Seibert (featured previously) makes amazing ‘Gehyry-esque’ sand castles using a variety of shapes and designs. The results are fantastical buildings that look more like modern architecture than traditional ‘castles’. Seibert shares his work in a continuously growing gallery on Flickr where he also adds:

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.

 

Be sure to check out all of Calvin’s wonderful sand castles on Flickr.
