Sand Carpet Project by Danielle Van Ark

Yes you read correctly, your eyes are not playing tricks on you those are carpets made out of sand! The three pieces were painstakingly put together by Danielle Van Ark over a five week period at the Academy for Visual Arts, Amsterdam using hand cut stencils and a lot of sand (and patience). It really was an exhibit that needed to be seen first hand to fully appreciate, which is unfortunate for anyone who didn't because the room was completely cleared yesterday evening! Although there was a rumour that an Art collector was interested in buying the stencils and instructions in order to recreate the pieces, so maybe you will get a chance…
