SandBlasters

Posted by themischord on March 7, 2007

Watched this Extreme Sand Sculpting Championship on TV and I’m more than just awed. Apart from the fact that the participants made interesting sand sculptures, I thought the competition rules were really unique. Through out the duration of the competition, the organizers randomly pick a team and blast their structure, making the team start all over again! Ah, and that’s not it, when a structure gets blasted, the others too get affected, what they call as ‘collateral’ damage. And one team actually put sand ‘cannon’ balls in their structure, to ensure that if they went down, they would bring others down too. What an idea!

Check out the photos. They looked better on tv and I bet they looked even better on the beach. How I hated to see them being blasted. Umm… given that I still preserve my painting from high school days- half done and half eaten by termites, I can’t obviously see those pieces of art go bham!
