Amazing Modernist Sandcastles by Calvin SeibertSaturday 7 January 2017
Almost each time you are at a beach with your bare feet standing on hot sand you remember the times you were a happy child playing with your family and friends. One of the most fun activities is to build castles in the wet sand. In that beach, under a warm sun and inspired by a wonderful landscape, you often explored your architect genes. If you think you were talented, and perhaps you really were, you should meet Calvin Seibert Work. To watch the amazing modernist sandcastles made by Calvin Seibert, it is truly a jaw-dropping experience! Calvin Seibert is the architect of magical sandcastles.
“Building sandcastles is a bit of a test. Nature will always be against you and time is always running out. Having to think fast and to bring it all together in the end is what I like about it.” Calvin Seibert
Temporary sand structures can be vanished fast and easy by the time and the weather, by waves, the wind, people and many other reasons. Luckily they can endure forever by our memories and by photographs.
We recommend visiting the Flickr Calvin Seibert. We have to warn you that you will be addicted to the talent of C. Seibert. He has already about 900.000 views. Seibert is a professional sculptor with such powerful talent that he can transport us, who witness his masterpieces, to a magical and strange universe, full of geometrical shapes. He challenges himself in each creation doing something different and original, the unusual architectural visual of his creations reveals temporary sand structures that can live forever in our memory.
“I rarely start with a plan, just a vague notion of trying to do something different each time. Once I begin building and forms take shape I can start to see where things are going and either follow that road or attempt to contradict it with something unexpected.” Calvin Seibert
“In my mind they are always mash-ups of influences and ideas. I see a castle, a fishing village, a modernist sculpture, a stage set for the oscars all at once. When they are successful they don’t feel contained or finished. They become organic machines that might grow and expand. I am always adding just one more bit and if time allowed I wouldn’t stop.” Calvin Seibert
