Comics: An Art Form in Transition
Thursday, September 14, 2006 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm EDT
Comics: An Art Form in Transition with comics artist Scott McCloud. In the last 20 years, print comics have struggled toward maturity through the literate graphic novel movement. Now, that same art form is experiencing a vastly different set of growing pains on the web, raising fundamental questions about the reading experience, the functions of storytelling in society, how art forms adapt to dominant technologies and the role of space in information design. Cartoonist, teacher and author Scott McCloud explores these and other questions in a fast-moving visual presentation. Co-sponsors: MIT Media Lab and MIT Lecture Series Committee.
