Maine beach art
This summer, my family and I went to Maine and we came across this sculpture garden on the beach. This was one of the most extensive piling of rocks, but not the only grouping I saw. This grouping of stacked rocks might have been started by one person, but it became clear that the building of ever more structures was in constant flux. I watch adults and children add to these structures or destroy one to create another one. This ever changing sculpture garden is driven by a public compulsion to participate. My son and I had to make our temporary make with a piece of our own. The process of balancing these rocks were extremely satisfying.
