Pine in the Sand tells a story about unpredictable change while highlighting the often overlooked maintenance and infrastructure enlisted to preserve and stabilize the environment.
A mound of sand is planted with a pitch pine and partially contained by a ring of concrete barriers opposite rows of granite benches. Through the seasons, as the sand shifts, the tree acts as a register for change.
