Your Personal Message
A show story by the sand artist Katrin Weißensee is already a very good choice for high-quality entertainment. Even management audiences and guests who have already seen everything else feel relaxed and quickly get into a cheerful evening mood. Short greetings, slogans or simple logos can be integrated into most sand stories without problems and often even at no extra charge.
Communicating with Sand
Sometimes it is necessary to convey additional messages. For this purpose, there is the possibility to add a two to three-minute (welcome) trailer before the show part to the existing sand story and to design the final picture of the story individually. You can benefit from Katrin Weißensee's well-founded training as a graduate business economist, specialized in marketing and communication, as well as from our many years of experience in the implementation of company content.
Your own Sand Story
Of course, you can also book a completely separate story. You have to be aware, however, that the phases from concept creation and motif-finding, through music research and processing, and from implementation and training time to performance readiness are very time-consuming and cost-intensive. Lead time 3-6 months!
When I discovered the art of sand painting, I was not aware that no artist in Germany had done this before me. My first performances elicited incredible emotions from my audience, in men and women of all social classes and occupational groups. This was a great privilege for me - a gift that will accompany me all my life and for which I will always be grateful. This great art has done so much for me and I do what I can to allow this art to unfold what it really is capable of: complex images and content, playing with tempo, sequences and music, create emotions that don't just have to stir to tears. Sand painting as background entertainment with endlessly long-drawn motifs and music soundscape, does not accomplish this. Also, "commissioned painting" can be greatly implemented, but perfection needs a lot of training and creativity takes time.
Katrin Weißensee on her art
Sand Painting - How it Works
On the glass pane in a light box, the fingers of the sand artist Katrin Weißensee play in rhythmic harmony with the music with fine sand. This creates picture stories that are filmed by a camera and transmitted in real time to a projection screen, video wall, or LED screen. In a nocturnal atmosphere, this art form creates a magic that no audience can escape. Sandbox, sand and camera are brought by the artist; Beamer, screen and sound system are provided by the organizer.
To see a sand performance by Katrin Weißensee means to experience a total work of art consisting of painting and music. Her art is not a mere series of motifs; music is not just a soundscape in the background. The images in Katrin's stories coalesce with each other, creating new layers, surprising twists and astonishing content with a few, thoughtful strokes. The music infuses the pictures; the pictures infuse the music. An optical and acoustic pleasure is created. This makes her art valuable, unique and ultimately an art.
