Crop circles, minus the crops.

Sand circles. A group called Phidelity has been making sand art on the beaches of California with some string, a couple of rakes, and a trowel. Check out photos, and a time lapse video [.mov] of the team at work. Just make sure you check the tides before you start working. [via]

Oh man, this makes me want to go to the beach so bad.

Too bad I'm 2000 miles from Little CDM.

Very nice -- I especially like how they developed a whole different aesthetic for the sand circles. It's much more appropriate to sand than the crop circle designs.

I love that they clean the beach up when they work.
Good on them, man.

Just for clarification: Phidelity isn't a group -- it's a guy named Kris Northern. He's a designer and musician from SF ... and one of my all-time favorite DJs. Assuming his bandwidth doesn't get destroyed, I encourage y'all to check out his DJ mixes. The top one is my favorite.

I love the newspaper clipping at the bottom of that page.

"Park ranger's killer to be freed soon"
"House sifted for clues to death"
"Big beach art -- here one day, gone the next"
