Sand Fantasy

A friend forwarded this a couple of weeks ago, but I of course waited until today to pass it on.

At first you'll see the sand painting as the most obvious form of expression. But quickly you discover the phased transitions define a whole new type of choreography. The painting has a very limited life, which brought me to realize the art is more of a performance than than the images it creates.

With the unfolding story, it's more like, "dancing fingers in the sand". Or to get distracted with an Elton John alliteration, "tiny dancer in your hand". Like watching God's in the act of creation.

This artist is certainly the spirit that makes sand dance.

So simple. So effective.

Or do I see too much in the movement of sand?

Great music too.

Happy Valentine's Day!
