Thinking Tools for Hour Glass Days

Like Wordsworth's sister, all at once we came across a host of fluoro digging tools.
What would be par for the beach if  seen in a single pair, this quiet riot of spades and buckets inveigles a disquiet, a singular sense of whimsy whooped up, an idea that this mise en scene is  not so much an invitation to play but an invitation to think: Why? Perhaps it's the first of a sculpture in the sand series, a base camp to look at the dispersion of  toys over time on sand, an invitation to construct a sand glass?
