Amazing Sand Animation by Kseniya Simonova

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.

The scene above is from the show’s finale and tells a story of World War II.
