comments: these temporary pieces take hours to create and can span miles of beaches. can't imagine what it would be like to witness one from start to finish and then to watch it dissolve with the tide. jim also founded and organizes "outstanding in the field". the idea is temporary "restaurants without walls" that bring local farmers, chefs and guests together to enjoy meals prepared with local ingredients on site. they can take place at farms, gardens and even mountain tops. check out his website (see above link) and read about his work. amazing and inspiring.
