Kseniya Simonova

This post has nothing to do with Moab, paper, printing nor photography, but some things are just too cool not to share.  

The artist, Kseniya Simonova, age 24, uses "sand animation" to show how ordinary people were affected by the German invasion during World War II.  Her unique talent is mesmerizing.  This video is from "Ukraine’s Got Talent", where she was the winner.

From the UK Guardian, "Here, she recounts Germany conquering Ukraine in the second world war. She brings calm, then conflict. A couple on a bench become a woman's face; a peaceful walkway becomes a conflagration; a weeping widow morphs into an obelisk for an unknown soldier. Simonova looks like some vengeful Old Testament deity as she destroys then recreates her scenes - with deft strokes, sprinkles and sweeps she keeps the narrative going. She moves the judges to tears as she subtitles the final scene 'you are always near'."
