In this captivating talk from the TED archive, Ben Katchor reads from his comics. These perceptive, surreal stories find the profound hopes and foibles of history (and modern New York) preserved in objects like light switches and signs. (Recorded at TED2002, February 2002, in Monterey, California. Duration: 11:17.)
