“You only went as far as your unexercised body took you. It’s enough, anyway — you can almost see the entire city from here. The Culture. A majestic tree of synthetic concrete, rising from the ground and up into the sky, tearing scarce clouds apart in its endless ascent.”

After opening on an initiatory joy ride through a future city, N O R M A L 0 0 1 will put you in front of a first graphic novel episode, where you’ll experience a morning ritual, and a diatribe against the anti-machine-state conspirationists. A few pages further, we will be looking at how technologies such as Augmented Reality could in fact turn a huge part of the visible environment into digital and contextual graphics. But also, how ‘variable’ might become the new black.

“Vous êtes allé aussi loin que le permettait votre corps en manque d’exercice. C’est assez, de toute manière — vous pouvez presque voir la ville entière de là où vous êtes. La Culture. Un arbre majestueux en béton synthétique, partant du sol et filant vers le ciel, déchirant dans son infinie ascension quelques rares nuages.”

Après une promenande initiatique dans cette cité du futur, N O R M A L 0 0 1 vous mettra en face du premier épisode de notre bande dessinée, dans laquelle vous aurez l’occasion de découvrir les rituels matinaux des citoyens de la Culture, avant d’assister à une diatribe contre les conspirationnistes anti-Machine. Puis, quelques pages plus tard, nous nous intéresserons à des technologies comme la Réalité Augmentée, et au fait qu’elles pourraient bien transformer une grande partie du monde visible en images numériques affichées contextuellement. Mais aussi comment ‘variable’ est entrain de devenir le ‘new black.’
