week #23 – @ninapaley / Nina

Who are you and where do you come from?
I’m Nina Paley from the US, currently Urbana Illinois. I spent the last 23 years in San Francisco, New York, and a few other cities, and moved back to my hometown last Summer. I’m an animator, artist, and Free Culture activist, best known for my feature film Sita Sings the Blues.

Share your twitter account with us and tell us what you are twittering about:
@ninapaley: I usually tweet things related to my own work, life, and copyright issues.

Tell us about your creative side:
I made Sita Sings the Blues, an animated musical feature film based on the Ramayana; a daily comic strip, Mimi & Eunice; many short films including Minute Memes for QuestionCopyright.org and This Land Is Mine, a chapter from a longer work-in-progress called Seder-Masochism. As a hobby I make art quilts.

What inspires you?

Time travel: Where would you go to?
Right now. I’m trying to be (t)here at this very moment. Wish me luck.

Name your favorite present book:
Impro by Keith Johnstone. It contains many insights about human relations and creativity.
