#WeCreate: Kseniya Simonova’s Sand Art

Sam av

I’m branching out on a different topic today. There is so much amazing art in the world, and it’s not solely limited to static, traditional media. I also appreciate music, filmography, and performance art, which I hope to showcase here when I can.

Today I want to spotlight Kseniya Simonova.

She is a sand animation artist, and was the 2009 winner of Ukraine’s Got Talent. Her performance art is done by scratching sand around on top of a light box ‘canvas.’ It’s a moving piece of work that morphs as she goes through her exhibition.

This is the first piece of hers I ever saw. It’s a piece about World War II. Hits you right in the emotions, so be ready for some heavy stuff.

S.K. Balk lives in the frozen wasteland of Northern Michigan. She is the author of the dystopian medical sci-fi THE BLOOD OF NERYS (also available in print).


About oneofthedragons

Samantha K. Balk and F. R. Donaldson met on An Archive of Our Own, one of the many fanfiction sites online, when Sam asked Frankie to illustrate the fanfiction that would one day lead to Sam's first novel. They've been friends ever since! This blog was created as a way to share the oftentimes difficult journey any new author experiences on the uncomfortable quest of an introvert for attention to his or her most personal work. It is meant to remind you that authors don't just appear fully fledged like a George R. R. Martin, that all of us start out unsure and feeling inadequate. Feel free to ask us anything.
