This weekend, you can be a part of temporary art on Boston beaches.
San Francisco-based artist Andres Amador creates elaborate artworks along shorelines. He uses tiny rakes on the sand, creating large-scale geometric designs you have to see from above to appreciate their scale.
Amador started creating this kind of art about 13 years ago. He was studying geometry and became interested in what geometric patterns and symbols mean within different cultures. While explaining types of geometric patterns and how they can can be iterated over and over to a friend while standing on a beach, he sketched out a few in the sand.
“I was like, this is how you would start any crop circle,” Amador said. “It can be any size you want, you just have to have the space for it.”
