This is brilliant. VeryShortList calls Kseniya Simonova “the Susan Boyle of visual art.” You'll quickly see why (and agree).

Her craft is sand animation — drawing images in sand on a light table and projecting them. This video clip is taken from (believe it or not) Ukraine's Got Talent, which she won handily. It shows her telling the story of the German invasion of the Soviet Union during World War II. Powerful.

Be sure to turn sound on for the excellent (and appropriate) musical accompaniment.

*** Market trend?

Hi Ned,

Since you publish a listing of jobs each week, I wonder if you've noticed

any trends in the market for communications professionals. As a casual

reader, it seems the lists are a little longer then they were six or 12

months ago and that there are few more director or VP-level positions, but

maybe I'm just looking for signs of a thaw that aren't really there.

Thanks,

Greg

(I really do see a trend that I can point my finger at. There are still jobs. Some fields, like defense, are still hiring. Some markets, like D.C., are still pretty good. The length of the newsletter is more a function of how much time I can devote to it than of the universe of available jobs. I have seen fewer headhunter listings. And if you recall those listings that are posted on behalf of a person’s employer for which a suggested optional contribution of a shirt/hat mug would be appropriate, I can tell you those shipments to the JOTW Global Operations Center have virtually dried up. Ned)
