When did sand castles become modern?

Calvin Seibert's "sand castles" are really nothing of the sort, looking far more like modern, mid-century sculptures than a home for the Little Mermaid.
His works, created over the last 6 years, have a gorgeous geometric style to them. Each makes use of the clean, monotone coloration of sand, which through Seibert's talented hands transforms into something almost cement-like in appearance. The flat, perfectly formed surfaces contrast sharply with the rough crumbles of sand which surround them, making each temporal piece look almost like a gem which sprouted from the seaside. You can find more of his work - which would be well suited as inspiration for architects and designers - on Flickr. -Written by Benjamin Starr of Visual News.
