Matt Kaliner's sandcastles are more awesome than yours


The Atlantic profiles an artist who specializes in strange sandy monument, protruding like living things from shallow waters.

His creations look nothing like classical interpretations. Instead of mounds and turrets and moats, Kaliner's structures are drippy archways that twist, jut, climb, and at times appear suspended in midair. They are otherwordly, like something you'd find on a beach in Neverland, or what it might look like if Antoni Gaudi had designed the fictional island of Laputa in a dream.
