Categories: East Asia, South Korea, Arts & Culture, Citizen Media, Disaster

Various artists have joined in paying tribute to the victims of the Sewol ferry disaster [1] which cost over 260 lives, most of them high school students. This stunning sand animation video commemorating the victims and their families uses nothing but sand on a flat surface and artist's fingers to arrange the sand to create depth, shadow and density. The sand art, which brought some audiences to tears, was created by artist Shin Mi-ri and directed by Nam Ji-sun.
