Sand animation, also known as sand art or sand painting, is a style of live performance art in which an artist creates images using sand on a lightbox. Sand is applied to the surface of the lightbox, then images are rendered by drawing lines and figures in the sand with the hands. The images are projected onto a screen so the audience can view them.

The inspiration for Nicole's use of sand painting in The Secret History show came from the amazing work of Kseniya Simonova. You can read more about her here.
