Like Sands Through the Hourglass...

I love this YouTube clip of Kseniya Simonova's sand-art performance on the Ukrainian version of "America's Got Talent" because it collapses so many aspects of the picture-book process into a live, short segment. Not only do we see the creation of the artwork (and how amazing is it that she can create the desired facial expressions with a mere flick of the wrist?), but the artist must think about structuring her series of images in a deliberate design. And she effectively tells her story about Ukraine's experience of WWII, clearly moving her audience--yet another aspect of the process that we get to witness, all within 8 and a half minutes.
