SAND ART TO SPEAK ABOUT CAP
SAND ART TELLS THE PAC
Sand animation, known as Sand Art, is an animation film technique that consists of creating two-dimensional images using the plasticity of sand. The greater or lesser quantity of sand used creates extraordinary light-shadow effects.
There are two styles: in the first case animators create with sand the single frame of the animation film. In the second case, the artist creates a series of images by drawing lines and figures with sand on a translucent surface (such as a light board, like an overhead projector) or backlit: the figures are taken by a camera placed over the table and images are transmitted on a screen.
