Things That Amaze Me :: Volume 4

Saturday, November 20, 2010

This is a clip from the show "Ukraine's Got Talent". Kseniya Simonova, the contestant, is working on a light table covered in sand. The table and her art is being projected on a screen behind her. She is telling the story of one of the bombings of Kiev during World War II. Just after the five minute mark in the clip, you'll see one of the monuments in Kiev that commemorates those aerial bombings.

The video is about eight and half minutes long and well worth taking a short break to watch.

One of the things I also love about this video is that the artist had only been drawing for a year when she did this performance - proof that stories need to be told and talents shouldn't be hidden or hindered because of age or lack of "paying one's dues". What part of your talents have you been holding back that you can share with world?

PS: She won.
