Wow. Just...wow.

From ashbet...

Artist Kseniya Simonova tells the story of the Nazi invasion of Ukraine, and the effects it had on two young lovers, using nothing but sand and a light table.

The words at the end are variously translated as "You will always be near" or "I'm waiting for you".

Amazing and moving. Not as culturally bankrupt as American talent shows. Thank you for sharing your find.

More appropriately translated as "you are always near."

I was tempted to make the correction in the Youtube comment thread -- I had Simonova's performance open in a tab for five days now -- but that'd be a violation of my unwritten rule no. 3: Never, EVER, for any reason, participate in Youtube comment threads.

No connection, but far too good not to share. In case you haven't seen it before...

I had picked up a link from somewhere else. I'm not ashamed to say it drew a tear. Very very impressive work.

I just keep wondering... how the heck do you discover a medium like that?
