Nina Paley's Dancing Statues

I enjoyed watching this video by Nina Paley. She animated the pictures of statues (taken from the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York) and made them look like they're doing a production number. I love the music too!

Nina Paley is an American cartoonist and an activist of free culture, a social movement that promotes the freedom to distribute and modify creative works in the form of free content by using the internet and other media.

The very title of this video, "All Creative Work Is Derivative" reflects her conviction against over-restrictive copyright laws. "Copying," she says, "is the engine of cultural progress. It is not stealing."
