Title: Let Me Feel Your Finger First

Animator and Filmmaker Richard Squires's research outputs take various forms, from short films and animations to essays, comics, interactive installations and live art performances. This presentation will discuss ongoing research concerns in his practice such as creative approaches to the construction of narrative, representation and stereotyping in comics and animation and shifting dynamics in the relationship between the artwork and the audience.

He is a founder member of London-based comic art project, Let Me Feel Your Finger First (LMFYFF), which disseminates comics, animated films, drawing and web-based work. He shows in galleries and online; his films have been broadcast on UK television and screened at festivals internationally.
