What is sand?

Sand is loose grains of material primarily made of quartz, mica, feldspar and other minerals and rocks. Sand paintings are made by pouring colored sands into designs; often for cultural rituals and special celebrations. The designs take many days to complete, and finally brushed away.

Site Specific Art

Artwork that's created to exist in a given/certain place. Location is taken into account by the artist as he plans and creates his artwork. Robert Irwin reined and promoted it in California. Site Specific Art came after modernist objects as artist's reaction to the world's situation. Modernists objects were nomadic, transportable, only existed in museum space and were for commodification and market.

Environmental art

This is a collective term used to refer to a wide range of arts and practices that include the historical and ecological approaches to artistic works. The term often encompasses the ecological concerns though it is neither certain nor specific on this. It acknowledges and appreciates the early history environmental art movement as well as the art with a lot of activist concerns not forgetting the art that celebrates the connection between nature and the artist by use of natural materials.

Readymade

Readymade is the term Marcel Duchamp used to describe his artworks made from objects which were manufactured. The French artist first used the term, and artists who work similarly now use it. Duchamp chose functional objects which he felt had visual indifference.
