BONUS: digital “sand” art smiley March 8, 2011

"smile." Digital "sand" art created by Sam Tan, on thisissand.com, 07 March 2011. (Click image to see original.)

This is sand art. Except it’s done on the Internet. The website thisissand.com has created an online program that converts the pixels on your computer into digital “sand” and lets you “pour” it down the screen to create sand art. It’s weirdly addictive — once I started a piece, I was reluctant to quit until I’d finished it, even though it took forever — but it’s also quite a lot of fun. So imagine my delight when I visited the gallery of other user art and discovered this smiley face!

And, believe it or not, I am not the artist on this one, even though this artist, too, is named “Sam.” Weird.

Thanks, “Sam Tan,” for making me smile!
