Her website ("a wild place with a boring facade") has brief descriptions of lots of her recent work - visualizing debt, using sound to express and manipulate debt, dramatizing the dirt that still lingers in clean bank lobbies, repurposing an old activist video to critique education as an instrument of social control and subordination through student debt, and so on....

Comics Can Take Us Places

Event: 
Sat, 05/02/2015 - 11:00am - 12:00pm
Comics tap directly into our sense of memory, time and place – sometimes without words. In this fascinating presentation, cartoonist Megan Kelso explains how she uses memory, her own life, research, and photo references to create sequential panels that evoke the feeling of a specific, inhabited world. This Presentation is co-sponsored by Humanities Washington and the Friends of the Tumwater Timberland Library.
