Minuscule Castles Etched on Single Grains of Sand

Muniz_Coelho_sand1

We generally imagine sandcastles as modest estates formed by countless grains of sand. But for artist Vik Muniz and artist/researcher Marcelo Coelho, they thought the opposite. Taking a minuscule sand particle, they etched an entire castle on it. The process took them nearly four years to perfect, but the results are extraordinary. These detailed images (enlarged as photographs) are less than one half millimeter in length.

JackLongRiverGiants1

 

It would be quite shocking to come across these giant creatures emerging from the surface of a lake. In reality, though, it wouldn’t be possible considering Milwaukee-based photographer Jack Long captures the beautiful liquid formations at extremely high speeds.

With technical acuity, Long documents the unpredictable formations, entitled River Giants, as liquid splashes through the air in the blink of an eye. He says, “Even with complicated construction and extensive testing, the results are still often surprising and serendipitous.”
