Automatic Writing (excerpt, 2003, 1.8MB, 13 secs)

William Kentridge produces his haunting and evocative animations
in an extraordinarily labor intensive way. Each new drawing in a batch is
produced by erasing elements of the previous one and then re-drawing.
Check out the fountain and the goldfish in particular!
This extract from the New Museum website is a taster for a DVD
compilation of film and video artwork (including the whole Kentridge piece),
currently available at the reduced price of$700.
If you don’t stretch to that then make sure you catch Kentridge’s wholly original
and wonderful work next time it comes to a gallery near you.
