A few months ago, I blogged about the William Kentridge show, Five Themes, at SFMoMA. In that post, I described my introduction to Kentridge’s work ten years ago at the Carnegie International Show. Since that first encounter with his work, I have been a fan. This evening, I thought I’d post a copy of the original film that caught my attention:

The film has a soundtrack, but I was unable to find a full-length copy of it with the sound. Here is an abridged sample featuring the sound:

I love the raw quality of line and gesture; this piece still captivates me. What do you think, dear readers? Seen any great animations or art exhibits lately that you just can’t get out of your mind?

One response to Stereoscope

  1. I love this 😀 The scratchy nature of the animation pushes all the right buttons in me.
    I’d love to do music for an animation, especially something like this, I like watching it without the sound and making my own inside my head.
