Tide table 2003 is one of Kentridge’s iconic animations and exemplifies his technique of making charcoal drawings on a single page that are successively amended and filmed. Through animation Kentridge portrays the realities of daily life alongside the broader moral and ethical issues faced by the developing nation of South Africa as well as communities the world over.
