Kseniya Simonova is a Ukrainian artist who just won Ukraine’s version of America’s Got Talent. She uses a giant light box, dramatic music, imagination and “sand painting” skills to interpret Germany’s invasion and occupation of Ukraine during WWII; all done in real time while you watch.
In this video she interprets a full life cycle from a child’s birth to the loss of his parents; all etched literally and metaphorically into the shifting sand.
See this gallery of his covers with personal anecdotes and critical commentary.
From December 7th to December 18th, world leaders will gather in Copenhagen for the U.N. Climate Change Conference and will work to negotiate a treaty to reign in global warming. Climate change organizations 1 Sky and 350.Org are finding ways for individuals to make a difference by hosting an International Day of Climate Action.
On Saturday, October 24th, join thousands of communities in 140 countries to highlight the need to reduce carbon levels in the atmosphere to 350 parts per million, the upper limit of what climate scientists tell us is safe.
Sign up today to host an October 24 International Day of Climate Change Action Event
Potential events include a rally, a party, or any other action. The key point is to incorporate the number “350″ into a very visible sign or banner. Gather with your friends and family to take a picture, and the photo to 350.org so they can show the power of your actions to President Obama and key swing Senators.
