Help! by Marco Knock

After the release of the site in May 2008, the gallery on has constantly expanded with sand images refining one after another towards technical and visual totality. We treasure every bit of your output from private love messages to artistic and political statements. However, the hosting costs are up over our ears and the three of us need your help to keep the sandbox online. If you like us, please make a PayPal donation!



Mountains of sand have been spotted on Le Corps Mince de Fran├žoise‘s MySpace profile. In addition to the up and coming pop outfit from Helsinki, our timeless favourite Creative Review featured among Johanna‘s beautiful illustrations for ME magazine in their September 2008 issue.

Bug/feature fixed!

August 20, 2008

As you might have noticed, we have updated our sand application, and it no longer has the bug/feature of being able to draw “on top of sand”. It wasn’t actually planned to be there, and it didn’t really fit the concept either, so we fixed it.

Some people were quick enough to use their creativity with it in many interesting ways, and thus we definitely want to keep those pieces in the gallery, even if we have a reason to believe that some of them were achieved with a little bit of help from programmable mouse pointer scripts…
