While long range futures are an important part of N O R M A L S — explored through various entry points such as stories, graphic novels, and more — they serve us as a sandbox of sorts. Showcased as an interconnected narrative, with seemingly disconnected points, this sandbox universe allows for interesting creative play, yet remains a prototypical one where nothing is ever quite polished but rather open-ended. The Near-Normal® comes to complete our far futures by making them no less than self-fulfilling prophecies. This is were our scope moves onto more tangible futures, uncovering imminent, plausible realities that may or may not lurk around the corner. In essence, the Near-Normal is about anything speculative we may conceive as a prequel to the ‘normal future.’
