A Virual Conversation

J. Kevin Byrne with Annie Mok

Byrne is a Professor of Visualization at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design. Mok is an illustrator and cartoonist. Byrne writes: “EAP readers might like a look at a ‘comic art’ interpretation that brings together philosopher Martin Heidegger, environmental sculptor Kinji Akagawa, designer Herbert Bayer, the Dalai Lama, and me in a virtual conversation on a hilltop in Aspen, Colorado. This cartoon ends a bit like a ‘Star Trek’ episode in which characters on the spaceship Enterprise’s ‘holodeck’ are set to a ‘permanent loop’ inside the ship’s computer flash drive. Like that episode, I tried to give this cartoon a slight feeling of dénouement….” kbyrne@mcad.edu; http://anniemakesstories.com. Images and text © 2011, 2013, J. Kevin Byrne.
