Dotilla Hakari (Sand Bubbler Crab Feast)

About this project

Inspired by the simple beauty of the spoil heaps formed by the crabs as they feed on algae - these wonderful patterns are created and destroyed with each tidal cycle; rising tides bringing new grains of sand covered in fresh algae to the crab burrows, ebbing waters allow time for crabs to eat the algae and dispose of the sand in little balls. For them merely a function, for us humans, a work of art.
