The compelling uniqueness of SandStory is the mystery of what is going to come next. Much of what Mr. Castillo creates grows spontaneously from the way the sand scatters on the glass. It is impossible to predict or reproduce exactly what has happened before. The story is an organic result of skill, art and emotion.
