Thanks to Stumble! I've discovered the following videos featuring an artist called Kseniya Simonova who won Ukraine's Got Talent in 2009. She creates "Sand Animations" - creating a series of pictures and telling stories using only a lightbox and sand. It is truly awe-inspiring and hypnotic. I defy you to watch the first video and not watch the second part below!
Here's a link to another piece which has garnered over 17 million You Tube hits.
