Could Watch All Day: Mesmerizing Rotating Sand Art

rotating-sand-art.gif

This is a mesmerizing 15-minute video of an artist manipulating sand on a spinning surface to hypnotize your brain and make you do things you normally wouldn't. In my case, it was eat a healthy lunch. I'm kidding, I had half a box of Girl Scout Cookies and the Snickers bar I found in the freezer. How and when did it get there? Well if I were a betting man I would put all my money on 'this weekend, and there was alcohol involved'. I'm not a betting man though, so I'm going to assume it was my roommate's. I also drank the rest of his chocolate milk.

Keep going for the video. Then GET LOST IN IT.

Thanks to uglybuckling, who is actually the opposite of ugly but is 100% buckling.

    But how does the sand not fly off? This spinned very fast at some points.

    Its clay not sand.

    My bet is that its slightly wet sand rather than dry...
