“Ars longa, vita brevis”, goes the phrase (Art is long, life is short), but then, some art is much more temporary than most.
The art of Andres Amador, though ostensibly made of “archival materials”, lasts only until the next high tide.
Amador takes his rake to the beaches of northern California and creates carefully controlled markings in the sand, then photographs the result.
You can read more about his process on his website. There is also a gallery of his work here.

Wow! I think this is an awesome idea! Makes me want to grab a rake and leave a little surprise for the beach goers in the morning! :)
