Pictoplasma NYC Festival 2011

Pictoplasma NYC is a festival of contemporary character design and art and will take place in New York City for the third time for a long weekend of conferences, exhibitions and guest speakers. The conference invites a diverse audience of graphic designers, illustrators, animation filmmakers and producers, fine and urban artists and character connoisseurs to gather under one roof and discourse freely about the world of character-related art and design. The presentations are accompanied by feature-length ‘Characters in Motion’ screenings, showcasing a selected mix of new character-driven animation, motion graphics, music videos and shorts. Confirmed speakers include Tim Biskup, Joshua Ben Longo, Joel Trussell, Raymond Lemstra

After its US premiere in 2008, the event now returns to New York for the third Pictoplasma NYC edition, November 4-5, 2011 at New York’s Tishman Auditorium of Parsons The New School for Design. Exhibitions are open November 3-6, 2011.

“The Unreberating Echo”by Kim DaeJin

With his college entrance exams creeping up, Chae Jang-Su has been studying hard every day. But something was off about this day. Somehow, all the consonants have disappeared from Chae’s textbooks. And then Chae is unable to read or speak a single consonant… So why hasn’t anyone noticed what’s going on? “@!#?@!.” Chae runs wild through the city while screaming these “echoes” understood by no one. This controversial work depicts mankind and the distortions of modern society in a way that embodies the quote by the philosopher Pascal, “Men are so necessarily mad.”READ the comic here
