Using a shovel, a Frisbee, and whatever natural tools the ocean provides,
Lynas creates finely carved and often enormous sand sculptures in dynamic
interaction with nature. Each piece is gradually altered and eventually
reclaimed by the recycling tide.
Lynas' special talent was documented in a film, Sandsong, which
was awarded the Blue Ribbon at the 1981 American Film Festival and has
since earned numerous prestigious honors and has been seen by millions
on television all over ther world.
This book, designed and photographed by the artist, preserves
many of his sculptures in 109 images, 22 in full color. It is a vibrant
record of a performance art that has captivated live audiences and will
readers for years to come.
