We already talked about Simon Beck, and how he spends his days walking with snowshoes at his feet to create spectacular designs on snowy expanses. Similarly but with a simple rake the English artist Tony he makes equally striking drawings in the sand. He calls them ethereal works and has been doing them for over twenty years. He interacts with the environment by creating these temporary works which he then lets nature erase. These sand drawings are another example of temporary art.

To create each design, spends hours on the coast, with a rake to form lines and circles in the sand. The drawings do not last long, are swept away by the waves or crossed by surfers and swimmers very quickly.

“I think of drawings as non-precious things. Some people don't understand why I do it, because there's nothing left after the tide has washed it all away, but for me it's just another blank canvas to work on. "
