You Are Always Near

If you haven't seen the hauntingly beautiful video of Kseniya Simonova's winning performance on "Ukraine's Got Talent," it's definitely worth a look. The 24-year-old artist specializes in sand animation, a style of live performance art. Kseniya uses sand and a light box along with dramatic music to tell a story of love and war set amid the turmoil of Germany's invasion and occupation of Ukraine during World War II.
