visitors to play with an intricately cascading landscape of black sand.
Visitors slowly rotate a 24" Plexiglas orb filled with densely
packed sand. The sand is divided into two hemispheres by a sheet of
aluminum that allows the sand to drain through small holes. The resulting
avalanches are mesmerizing as mountainous shapes begin to take shape.
The formation of miniature deep ravines, steep mountainsides, and liquid-like
flowing avalanches are reminiscent of similar phenomena in nature.
