Referencing William Kentridge

Our Skype chat Thursday featured William Kentridge. I already knew the three videos that Jonathan presented. Below are the two Kentridge videos that I cited in my research paper. Kentridge has worked things out by filtering them through himself, not taking things second hand and because of that, he is able to talk with a poetic clarity that is unifying in a way that common sense is. This is why he connects so well and is so worth listening to and looking at. What a wonderful thing, online videos that we can access so easily. Kentridge came to UAL to give us a talk, which I appreciated but I would have much preferred that it was him talking all the time rather than him being guided and interrupted in a chat session. Question and answer in the case of Kentridge, I think really diluted his presence – he offers so much more on his own just talking as he does. Below my own references are the three that Jonathan brought to our attention in the Skype chat.
