Sandman

A series of fully and partially cast classical busts were strewn about a public beach in Wilmette, IL, until they deteriorated due to natural weather conditions. The title is a play on words that references a mythical character in Northern European folklore who brings good dreams by sprinkling magical sand onto the eyes of children while they sleep at night.
