A television experiment. Cartoonist Chris Ware teams up with his animator, John Kuramoto, to make a cartoon version of a true story. Jeff Potter tells the story to host Ira Glass: about an art project, a bunch of first-graders, and how being behind the camera can rob you of your humanity even if the camera’s not real. Chris and John supply the visuals.

“I’d have to say this record is pretty much unlike anything else I’ve done. There’s some relation to music I made for my book “Photographs” but really only in instrumentation. The intro to The Sea and Cake’s David Bowie cover of “Sound and Vision”, on One Bedroom is an early precedent. The most significant difference, is that I’ve left the confines of “song” structure.”
a collection of photography created by Sam Prekop has been available on Presspop (Japan), and here.
