The Gunilla Klingberg 'A Sign in Space' is a sandprint show in the Sense & Sustainability art exhibit.

Klingberg creates this alien print using a tractor that rolls a steel cylinder across the beach. With deep grooves (much like truck tires) that sport a graphic pattern, the coast is marked up during low tide. As the tide rises, the masterpiece will be washed away. Passersby may observe this art spectacle take place on Laga Beach during the morning hours on specific days from July through to September.

The embossed pattern is a form of public space decoration, much like the cobblestone paths one might find in a piazza in Europe. The crucial difference is that this print may be thoroughly appreciated due to its short life-span while leaving its canvas totally blank given a bit of time.
