Art is as simple as building a sand castle.
I wanted to see if the same social dynamics happened when artist drew a sand castle as happened when a group of beach goers build a physical sand castle. This project took 12 1/2 hour to accomplish. 6.25 hours of drawing and then 6.25 hours of erasing or painting over in this case. During the 6.25 hour drawing stage Graduate student artists were invited in to draw or spectate as long as they wished and in the mean time they talked a lot about the same things that people on the beach do when they build something like a sand castle. At the end of the drawing I systematically removed the drawing as if the tide were coming in and washing the previous creative work away.
