The Unconnected Life: James Sturm on Living Without the Web

Thursday, April 15, 2010

For this week's tech segment, we talk with esteemed graphic novelist James Sturm about his attempts to live without Web access.

Sturm is the author of the graphic novel “Market Day,” and the director of the Center for Cartoon Studies in White River Junction, Vermont. After realizing that his hours spent online every day were robbing him of real-life experiences, he recently decided to give up the Internet for four months, and blog (in his own way, on paper) for Slate.com about the experience.

We talk with him about how the web-free life is going, and what lessons he’s learned in the first three weeks of his experiment.

James has created an another art piece that has nothing to do with cartooning. It is a living performance art statement. It is filled with negative space of another kind. So real and poignant.
