The eighty-eighth meeting of the NY Comics & Picture-story Symposium will be held on Monday, June 16, 2014 at 7:00 PM at The School of Visual Arts, 132 West 21st St, 3rd floor studio. Free and open to the public.

Presentation by R. Orion Martin: Image Remix: Appropriated Comics

Discussions of comics often focus on the painstaking process of hand-drawn illustration. Remixed comics collaged from digital images offer an alternative that emphasizes flexibility, speed, and adaptation. Orion Martin will give a brief overview of the possibilities in appropriated comics.

About the Speaker: My goal is to create innovative comics that challenge assumptions about what the medium can be. I’m also interested in applying the critical discourse of contemporary art to comics. Recent projects have included appropriating images to comment on the history of comics production and exploring the intersection of science fiction and social commentary. For people who are interested to know more, I send monthly process-based updates about my work to my supporters on I also write about Chinese art. The archived interviews and essays I’ve done can be found here in both Mandarin and English. Website: | Orion Martin on Tumblr and Twitter
