Sand Animation

This, from the 2009 winner of Ukraine’s Got Talent…

Kseniya Simonova’s sand animation is visually haunting, and the impermanence of her pieces lend poignancy. Beyond the beauty and grace of her marks, her hypnotic, balletic performance is stunning. The entire affair becomes more fascinating when you learn that she’s telling the story of how the Nazis invaded the USSR in what they call the Great Patriotic War and Americans think of as WWII, the Eastern Front.
