The Art of Storytelling: Sand Animation

By Kseniya Simonova, winner of "Ukraine's Got Talent" 2009. Check out her sand animation above. It's an incredible demonstration of the art of telling a story visually that touches the heart and mind. Kseniya executes precision in every detail which draws you into the story even deeper.

Sand animation, also known as sand art, is a term which has two meanings. It is the name given to a style of live performance art, and also to a type of animation. In the former, an artist creates a series of images using sand, a process which is achieved by applying sand to a surface and then rendering images by drawing lines and figures in the sand with one's hands. To increase visibility and to add further artistic aesthetic, a sand animation performer will often use the aid of an overhead projector or light board. In the latter, animators move around sand on a backlighted or front lighted piece of glass to create each frame for their animated films.

Sand Animation is a cool live performance art.

Your Personal Development Begins With Expanding Your Awareness

You must be aware of your potential to express it.  Most people like myself must consistently find ways to explore our human potential.  And, like most, I respond best to visual demonstrations.  The video below displays how our thoughts and feelings can affect our environment health and our personal development.  It's just one visual way we can see how our thoughts and feeling create our reality.          

So it is worth the time to work on your mind and heart.  Your personal development begins with expanding your awareness.
