This is the work of N O R M A L S as a universe. One where today's potential for change mates with recurring themes like love, death, or post-civilizational fully-automated anarchic luxury, and explorations of such themes feed into unique artifacts and phenomena populating an anticipated future. 

Desirable to some, distressing to others, the society at its core is what you make of it.

Sit­ting on a wall, N°433 slow­ly sips an ultra­vi­t­a­m­i­nat­ed rain­bow juice aug­ment­ed with lit­tle spi­ral­ing clouds. Before her, acres of vir­gin land spread­ing out are pro­gres­sive­ly lev­eled by a myr­i­ad of print­ers dron­ing about. Frenz are run­ning around, impa­tient to final­ly make this lit­tle piece of Cul­ture their own.
— And so, we get to build what we want?
N°73 is already busy plan­ning for the gigan­tic mon­u­ment to him­self he'd always want­ed. — "Ye" — with­out look­ing away from his inter­face. "Well, with­in the lim­its of reason…"
N°433 laughs.
— And what are these lim­its exactly?

N123, Stories of The Normal Future

Last entry on 
Mar 16 2016

A book series com­pil­ing all of the work of N O R M A L S between 2012 and 2013. Every design exper­i­ment and spec­u­la­tive impulse has been curat­ed into a series of 3 paper pub­li­ca­tions. Rather than a crude com­pi­la­tion of nar­ra­tive sin­gle­tons, all of our more-or-less sil­ly ideas about futures are hyper­linked into a cohe­sive world depict­ed into a graph­ic nov­el, along with project doc­u­men­ta­tions and oth­er stories.
