Indoor Sand Dune

Sand literally pours into the room from the room next door. The town of Kolmanskop, which was housing for management and workers of the nearby diamond mine, has been abandoned for over 60 years and the desert is reclaiming it. The level of sand continues to grow and more rooms are becoming engulfed. What used to be elegant houses have now become ruins filling up with sand. It pours though windows and doorways and is slowly burying the remnants of this town.
