Remember how concerned your mother was about getting dirt on the carpet? Well, tell her not to worry because these stunning “carpets” are made entirely of sand. SAND. Amsterdam based artist Daniëlle van Ark spent five weeks creating these sand carpets while in residency at Rijksakademie… and apparently it took the janitor five minutes to sweep it up when the exhibition was over. Ouch. I really hope Daniëlle didn’t watch that! Goodbye beautiful, elaborate designs… and yes you’re seeing that correctly… bye bye PACMAN carpet!
