All Creative Work is Derivative

By using photographs of archeological artifacts from the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, this video makes the point that all creative acts are done in the context of society, other ideas and all that came before.  We might enjoy the idea that we are uniquely creative, coming up with entirely new ideas, but in reality we are the result of our life experiences and our exposure to the creative product of all of society.  Our work extends that which came before and provides influence on others around us and in the future.  That is enough for me!
