The world lies beneath your feet; sand is the simplest and most obvious raw material that we know. Following the route a grain of sand travels, makes your heart skip a beat. The connections unravelled by such a quest show the deeper layers of our existence. At the same time, nothing is more fun than to play in a heap of sand.
