Polish artist NeSpoon made doilies, left them up on Oak Beach (Poland), and photographed people interacting with them:
The effects of my work aroused great interest. Many people made pictures of the installations, they moved them around from place to place, they were even used for the construction of beach camps. Small children with great joy played around them.
These objects made of lace, though very delicate, survived on the beach over a week.
Content warning: these pictures are from a European beach, so some of the pictures may be NSFW by American standards.
