Multimedia Box: Kseniya – giving life to sand

12 April, 2010 от · No comments

Kseniya Simonova is one of the few “sand animators” in the world. The artform is spectacular and fascinating. Skilful fingers give life to a handful of sand to the accompaniment of dramatic music. On a lightboard (to increase visibility and for increase dramatic effect) they draw constantly changing lines and shapes, creating a series of scenes that tells a story.

In 2008, the 25-year-old Ukrainian artist had just lost her business due to the financial crisis.
