Socially engaged environmental artist Zach Pine​ uses sand globes in his worldwide participatory project Earth in Your Hands, which aims to connect people to coastal areas and to each other through sand globe making.

Through his short video, a multitude of people worldwide have learned to make sand globes by tossing wet sand in the air; liquefaction, adhesion, and consolidation make it possible to create nearly perfect spheres of sand, held together only by water.

This gallery of photos shows the resulting creations and connection with nature that come with sand globe making.

​Pine describes his aim this way: “I want sand globe making to be as commonplace as sand castle building, giving people one more reason to visit and love coastal areas. Through the experience of sand globe making and sharing thousands of worldwide photos, we convey that we are all connected through the coastlines of our planet and are inspired to take collective creative action on behalf of our shared world.”
