Sculptor Calvin Seibert has created a number of amazing geometric sandcastles over the past several years. Seibert says building the sprawling sandcastles is a challenge, “nature will always be against you and time is always running out.”
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.
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.
