Check this video out.  Artist Kseniya Simonova just won what is the Ukrainian version of the popular TV show “America’s Got Talent”, and let me tell you, comparing this video to what shows up on the U.S. version, I’d say Ukraine’s not only got way more talent, but a much, much more sophisticated (i.e., educated) public.  Something like this would never win jack shit on American television.  Simonova uses a giant light box, dramatic music, and sand to creative an absolutely great moving piece of art interpreting the German invasion of Ukraine in WWII.  As an added bonus, I’m pretty sure that song that starts around 7:00 is a classical version of Metalica’s Nothing Else Matters.
