America’s Got Talent is an OK show – but when I was introduced to the “outside the US” versions, I came to realize there are some very good versions of that show around. Several things define it for me, but perhaps the biggest on of all ~ there is no 90-second time limit. The acts take as long as necessary to show what their talent is and how it works. Here is the winner from 2009 who introduced me to real sand painting.
BTW, this really does have something to do with this post – I promise …
I have been watching sand paintings/painters for several years … until I ran into this interpretation of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons. To quote:
” And today, we bring you the live-action sand animation of Hungarian artist Ferenc Cakó, who projects his work on a screen for a theatrical audience. These more sculptural forms may be more painstaking than traditional cel animation, and for that reason more rare, but they are also often much more interesting.”
And to give proper credit – here’s the site I found this…I have it bookmarked and visit it daily…It’s call “openculture” for a reason.
