(ab)Normal is a graphic novel without chronology.

Type of project
  • New areas of operation

(ab)Normal is a graphic novel without chronology. Instead, obsolete 3ds and rejected timelines are reconfigured in spatial narratives. Iconographic images describe the allegory of a culture that revolve obsessively around Internet, Gaming and Religion.
(ab)Normal is a multidisciplinary collective set to explore different realms - i.e. design, architecture, scenography, illustration, novel - with a particular focus on Architectural Representation. Photorealism is carefully deconstructed and rearranged in illustrations based on Normal vectors, avoiding the traditional structure that builds the contemporary visual description of a space. Hence, this project is both scientific in its method and evocative for its thematic background.
