3. Look at the following 2 videos by William Kentridge. Notice how the animation is a record of the drawing’s transformation to tell a story and how pentimenti plays a role in creating a richness and a connection to the artist’s thought process. Comment on one of your favorite passages in the animation and explain why you especially enjoy that transformation.
