Most people look at their computer screens as a tool that can help them at work or with other important things such as internet payments. But have you ever considered that the pixels that make up everything you see on your screen can be used to create postmodern art?
http://thisissand.com/ is a website that actually lets you use the pixels on your screen as if they were sand, manipulating it all over the screen in order to create a piece of art. You will shortly find out that it actually takes a lot of time to make the sand art, but once you'll get a hang of it, you'll want to try it over and over again.
The great thing about This Is Sand is that it can be used either as a browser-based application or as a mobile application – so you can use it whenever you are on the go. You might also want to check out the impressive gallery containing many pieces of art created with sand pixels, and you can even add your own piece of art once you feel up to the task.
The only thing you need in order to use This Is Sand is the latest version of Adobe Flash Player and some spare time to learn how to use this fun tool. It shouldn't be that hard to master it though, as it is quite user-friendly.
