They looks so natural and real but they are not. Meet SandcastleMatt a talented sand artist from Massachusetts. Using found objects like vines, plywood, and other junk he creates a sturdy framework to which he applies the classic drip method sandcastle technique resulting in these strange temporary structures that look like contemporary land art pieces.
One of Matt’s sandcastles recently became a viral meme suggesting his work was the result of lightning striking sand, but Scientific American debunked it. Check out more of his castles on his flickr page.
