The Savannah College of Art and Design held its annual Sand Arts Festival on May 6 on Tybee Island. Each year, students and alumni use sand and other materials found on the beach to craft sculptures that are then judged. In 2016, organizers tried to increase the amount of "air sculptures" in the festival.
This is the Beachbot, the result of a collaboration between Disney Research and Swiss Engineering school ETH Zurich. It's been specifically designed to drag a tiny rake in the sand while maneuvering around beaches like a canvas, drawing computer-aided designs of Disney characters, or whatever else is loaded into its telemetry.
Due to voice encephalitis, Andrew Clemens lost both voice and hearing and was sent to the Iowa Institute for the Education of the Deaf and Dumb. There, Clemens began experimenting with sand art. He fashioned special tools that he used to arrange the sand in intricate designs and then pack it tightly (he used no glue of any kind). Sizes and designs varied, and orders came to Clemens from around the world, each customer paying about 5-7 dollars. Clemens died in 1894.
