Klaus Boesch, a native Austrian born in 1963 and some art students in California worked on a research project for kinetic art, giving the birth to the raw idea of sand pictures.
Ever since a few people around the globe are creating sand pictures. The Sandman is the one who adapted this technique and brought it back to where it came from: The art!
I met first time Klaus Boesch in Dubai, during the Index Exhibition, in 2008 and I discovered those genial masterpieces.
Every sandpicture is an interactive and dynamic piece of art. It is interactive on its own, creating random landscapes or other structures with a simple touch, reversing the frame, according to our fantasy.
Each observer changes to a creator or say an artist by turning the picture upside down to let the game revolve and change the world again and again and again..
