Cleanest dirt I ever saw.. maybe this explains it:

World champion sand sculptor JOOheng Tan was recently asked by ad agency Lowe in Singapore to help create these impressive backdrops for an OMO washing detergent ad campaign.

Nice that they are impermanent. Good for kids.

Even cooler to me, from a link at the bottom of that page:

Portraits made by threading string between nails.

Can someone explain how he's arranging the nails? It seems to be more complicated than just (density of nails) = (darkness).

rooftop: Sure beats this dirt art.

Have you ever visited Walter Maria's Earth Room? it is an extraordinary experience, imo. Breathtaking.

But if you opinion has been formed because you looked at a couple of pictures of the work, I can understand that you would think it is not much of anything.
