Aesop

Layers of sand that resemble a mountainous landscape will gradually move and change shape forms a work by Mexican architect Frida Escobedo for skincare brand Aesop’s New York pop-up shop.

The installation at The Invisible Dog Art Center in Brooklyn features a simple wooden structure, which supports and frames the glass panels containing black and white sand.

The sand has been poured into gaps between the glass sheets, creating striated patterns that look like the peaks and valleys of a mountain range.
