Both of these artists helped me in finding inspiration with the Time Project. While Wodiczko focuses on the emotion in the act of a person and what they are expressing, Kentridge focuses on the social aspect of how others react within situations to the world around them.
Krzysztof Wodiczko deals with time like he sees the world around him. His art works focus on things such as: war, memory, trauma, and communication within society. He is an important artist to study for our time project because he focuses on things of the present as well as the past. What inspires him is the emotion and sudden circumstance the public is put in when they walk past the well known monuments and buildings and these temporary projections of hands or faces are portraying their emotion over things we usually shy away from dealing with.
For a man who majored in mime and theater, William Kentridges relation to our time project as well as my own is immense. Kentridge relates his own experiences with public settings. He uses mediums such as charcoal drawings, paper collages, and animated film to speak about political events. Growing up he witnessed his own sobering political event. As a person from Johannesburg, South Africa, he experienced the dissolution of an apartheid. His videos that he makes of himself tend to have a sense of repetition and he also reacts with some of the videos that he has created. In the terms of this time project I think it is important for us to study him in order to see how we can relate rhythm of time and events of the past in time. He records scenes as they evolve and grow. By doing this he allows himself as well as the viewer to experience the world that they tend to construct themselves.
