The Trope Troupe
There are other Trope Troupes; the Jewish tradition of Torah cantillations, the drama group of the United Presbyterian Church, Cortland USA, and a fantasy comic based on Final Fantasy.
The Trope part - not unconnected to TV tropes, my interest is in re-examining trope particularly with new media. Re-using found media materials with conscious, unconscious and twisted meaning cultural resonance and metaphor.
The Troupe part - I'm an individual, non-career, digital artist, and I am a small part of the Trope Troupe. I try to re-use other peoples bits and pieces, not just pictures, tunes etc - but research, press clippings and historical artefacts - all these people are also in the Troupe.
Some good tropes to remember (or keep looking up): metaphor, irony, litotes, meiosis, antithesis, allegory, allusion, anacoenosis, antanaclasis, antiphrasis, dysphemism, innuendo.
