    Orozco works in sculpture and photography in a style that is elegant, minimal, and antimonumental. His sculptures are often ephemeral—in this case, a table on a beach topped with a pyramid of sand—and his photograph of it gives the constructed situation a longer life. This work encourages an awareness of the temporal fragility of our accomplishments as well as of the richness of the resources available if we would but use the ordinary in poetic ways.
