“Barbara - a Tale of Transformation”
The design fiction graphic novel.

Text by Garðar Eyjólfsson
Illustrations and layout by Janousch Bela Kratz @janoschkratz.eu
Edited by Marteinn Sindri Jónsson.

“Barbara” is a near future design fiction based on an eponymous short story by Garðar Eyjólfsson. It recounts snippets of the first few decades of Barbara’s life and certain transformations she undergoes. The project is intended as a collaborative venue for various designers and artists to reflect on the intertwining possibilities between humans, technology, culture and the environment.

Fragmented translations and manifestations from the “Barbara” research will pop up here and there in the (un)foreseeable future exploring various platforms, formats and media.

Printed with Riso at Prent og vinir (Thank you so much).
