Faculty Talk: Ryan Tyler Martinez 

Moderated by Kristy Balliet

We know things primarily through their graphic representation. Think of all the work we make, it’s mostly graphic. When making drawings, images, images of drawings, drawings from images, images of images, or drawings from drawings, the graphic is what we identify as the thing we see. The talk will discuss a body of recent work with a focus on its graphic representation. Mostly, there will be a conversation around poster design and their relationship to projects. Also, there will be a discussion about public events and group projects.
