Over the weekend I saw Willam Kentridge's The Refusal of Time on display at the SFMOMA. The work itself is an immersive experience. There's a large room where 5 different screens are projected. Each of them telling the story of a different moment in time. There are chairs that invite the audience to sit down and watch the 30 minute film. In the center of the room is a large kinetic sculpture that moves during the piece. It was something I had never seen before. I found it so fascinating I went back to see it a second time.

What drew me in were the different mediums and materials coming together. There was audio, film, dance, sculpture, and lighting. At one point there is a woman moving in circles on one screen. On another screen is a silhouette made of torn pieces of paper that animate to resemble that woman doing circles. Something about this particular section had me inspired to make a collage. I love to illustrate and draw simplified representations of things I know. What a great challenge to create things we know into something else. Something uncommon and unknown. 

First I decided to Explore digital collages. There is so much work out there! Here are a few artists I found that I enjoyed. At the very bottom you can find the collage I made myself.
