A Sandy Surprise

Working downtown, I see some pretty crazy shit. Most of it involves people with political agendas (cough LaRouche supporters cough) or trying to save me from hell, or homless folk coming up with interesting ways to seperate me from my money. Yesterday, on the way to the bus, I came across this awesome scene in Westlake Center:

There were crews - artists, really - converting vast amounts of sand into sand castles (and sculptures.) This one reminded me of City of Lost Children, some kind of crazed, unnecessarily complex network of enormous pipes that eventually became a building.

Pretty damn cool!

Yeah I caught that also - pretty cool. Nice picture by the way.

Things like this remind me why I thought that art could save humanity.
