DIY Online Sand Art

December 4, 2008

Remember when sand was dyed a gradient of colors and packed between two panes of glass? You’d find this shifting sand art on your dad’s desk at the office or on living room tables and get mesmerized by the grains of sand tumbling over each other to fill the empty space as you turned it on its side.

The enjoyment of watching sand grains fall is back thanks to thisissand.com. You can create art by dragging your mouse over the page, using the gray gradient reminiscent of the sand art of yesteryear, or choose your own colors. Unfortunately you can’t tip your laptop afterward and watch it transform again so don’t bother trying. Not that I tried or anything.
