Although this video has been out since 2009, it remains one of the coolest vids on YouTube today.
This is an absolutely breathtaking performance by Kseniya Simonova on the popular show Ukraine’s Got Talent. The 24-year old artist specializes in sand animation, a style of live performance art. Using a simple light table, Kseniya uses sand to tell her story. The canvas is in a constant state of change as she moves seamlessly from scene to scene. Paced beautifully to haunting music; it is easy to see why she was declared the inaugural winner of Ukraine’s Got Talent.
These scenes are from the show’s finale and tells a story of World War II.
