Symbols In Sand

The scientific journal Frontiers in Ecology and the Environment did a column on the curiosities of the natural world... Sand bubbler crabs and the art they make. They happened to mention me:

"Intended to be temporary, most are swept away by a feather stroke soon after their completion – a type of ancient, oriental Etch-a-Sketch. Performance sand artists such as Charlene Lanzel (sand-artist.com) ... produce scenes with their hands in the sand spread over a light box, their works changing as fast as the next idea enters their heads."
