We're looking for a comic/graphic novel artist to create a short (8 page?) graphic novel interpretation of some of our scientific work. We work at Microsoft Research, and this work is in the domain of social media analytics. This particular research is about human attention and bias during social media consumption (see slide deck linked to below).
Given the nature of the content (there *is* a story, but not particularly a plot or characters), I can see this being fairly abstract or elements like characters being created. Really though we are very open to interpretation. Broadly we are interested in novel forms of media for our work.
Slide deck of work to be interpreted (more detail on key ideas and how they are related will be provided before work begins): http://www.slideshare.net/ScottCounts/attention-and-bias-in-social-information-networks
