From Site-specific Comics to Location-based Comics: Ordinary Things, Planting Comics, and GPS Comics

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

When the affordances of digital media are fully used, digital media offers the comic artist new meaning making strategies. I propose the idea of location-based comics where the reader turns into a participant and explores the story world by walking through the physical world. I will define the terms and clarify the differences between location-based and site-specific art. I will then explore the new meaning-making strategies that could be created with site-specific andlocation-based comics via my three different comic projects, Ordinary Things,Planting Comics, and GPS Comics: Seeing thru Walls.
