SAND

SAND, inspired by the landscape art of kare-sansui – Japanese Zen rock garden, is the gradual formation and flattening of a ripple pattern over a period of twelve hour cycles. In the daytime the hour hand draws ripple patterns on the sand whereas during the night these patterns are gradually flattened out to restart a new cycle.

The project was created as a result of our longing for nature and our desire to feel connected to it. In nature everything is constantly changing, moving from one cycle to the other; day-night, the moon’s phases, the sun, the tides. Sand visualises the passage of time through the spontaneous fluctuations in the patterns drawn on sand as the cycle unfolds over time.
