Video of the Day: Sand Artist Kseniya Simonova

Kseniya Simonova is the Ukrainian artist who just won Ukraine’s Got Talent 2009; she combines a giant lightbox, music, and loads of sand to create dramatic multimedia performance pieces that bring viewers to tears. The animation above depicts Germany’s invasion of Ukraine during World War II. Kind of makes Kevin Skinner seem even less impressive, huh y’all? [via Kottke]
