Mark making, collage and animation inspired by William Kentridge

Year 11 students from St John’s Grammar were inspired by William Kentridge’s stop motion animations, his use of mixed media and his thoughtful conceptual work.

Two students wrote, performed and recorded the soundtrack, another collated the class body of work and edited the animation in Adobe Premiere. They called their animation That which we cannot control.
