Wednesday Wonder: The 'Earthscapist'

Once I've created a piece, I feel like it's moved
through me and I can let it go. I don't feel
an attachment. I feel complete.
~ Artist Andres Amador

His tools may be simple and his medium a creation of nature but his ephemeral artworks rely on geometry and fractals. Self-described "earthscape artist" Andres Amador, who understands the art of letting go, says his creations are all a matter of being in the right place at the right time. Listen and watch as he talks with a KQED Arts interviewer about creating his wonders in the sand, which Amador calls "playa paintings".

Additional videos are available on Amador's Website.
