Esteban Diácono Creates A Mesmerizing Sand Dance

Posted: Updated:

We think this video directed by Esteban Diácono should help you ease back into the work week. Ólafur Arnalds' soothing sounds coupled with the strikingly beautiful clip for "Ljósið" make this a must for anyone needing a bit more relaxation before jumping back into the thick of things.

Ólafur Arnalds' ambient acoustic composition makes us want to close our eyes, but then we would be missing stunning visuals! The Buenos Aires-based motion graphics designer made the immersive clip with the software Particular and After Effects. Trapcode, the makers of Particular, have even used the video in promoting the software, harnessing the likability of these floating sand images to highlight the program's capabilities.

We just like it because we can finally give our "Pure Moods" compilation a much-needed break. What do you guys think? Pure relaxation or purely unnecessary? Let us know in the comments section below.
