them transitioning gleefully through the dustbin of art history, finding new uses for the engravings favored by Max Ernst or, inspired by the collaborative photograph “Dust Breeding” by Marcel Duchamp and Man Ray, devising ingenious ways to animate dust, metal filings and even splinters (Smith). These animators in particular had such a distinctive style that I enjoyed. I appreciated the social issues William Kentridge explored as well as the weird and dark fantasy worlds the Quay Brothers created. If I had to choose which of the two I favored over the others it would be the work of the Quays. The Quays’ breathtaking command of color and texture display and passion for detail was truly amazing.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
