moving sand sculptures

Sand sculptures are amazing, but they don't do much except to sit around in one place. I therefore propose an extension to the process which requires the constructed figures to deliver some movements. This is best acheived through a stop-frame animation process.

At eighteen frames per second, this will require the sand sculpture figures to be laboriously rebuilt many times, so the process of generating a few minutes of animation could take several years of total dedication, but just think of the brilliant results.

       [+] It's been done in 2D (link) but 3D would be cooler.

       Hmmm. I'll get back to ya.

       yeah, because 3D stop-frame animation just isn't difficult enough.
