A neato sand "cartoon" (.wmv). It's a video clip from the 2003 SiCAF. The file is a bit large, but hang in there.

That was very calming, almost therapeutic... best. 10 minute movie break. ever.

Reminiscent of Joan Gratz's flowing clay-painting animation work, in a sandy sort of way.

Agreed. This was amazing. Not just how precisely he could do it, but that he was so wiling to continually destroy what he had just done.

Very nifty, mesmerizing. Made me sleepy.

Most, most cool. Even asked the wife over to see it, and she thanked me afterwards (which is rare and unusual, trust me)...

Saved it too...

Absolutely extraordinary. But I could have done without the nincompoops in the audience trying to take flash pictures of the screen all through it. When will people get it through their heads; not only is flash photography in a theatre profoundly disruptive to everyone else, but it doesn't work. You just get a white screen. If you want to take a picture of something that's being projected in a dark room, at the very least you have to turn off the flash.

bz - I saw Joan Gratz's "Mona Lisa Descending a Staircase" about ten years ago and have been trying to track it down ever since. Does anyone here happen to know if it's available (online or elsewhere)?

I could not get this to play under OS X 10.3 using Windows Media Player for the Mac. The sound comes through clear but there's no video. Any ideas?
