Edition of 40 | 2016
A suburb like many others. Houses lining up, eternal repetition everywhere that perfectly arranges your daily life. For some it's a middle-class idyll, for others dreary monotony.
The three-part series follows you through that suburban area. At closer inspection small irritations meet the eye that subtly unfold a story. It slowly becomes clear that something's going on behind the curtains...
THE BARBIE MURDERS
by John Varley
Pencil, Digital | 36 pages
Edition of 5 | 2016
The future. Humans have colonized the moon. The capital city "New Dresden" stretches out over the Mare Crisium. When a murder occurs among many witnesses the case seems quite clear. The problem: victim and killer are both part of a cult, whose members all look exactly the same.
Published by John Varley in 1979, the sci-fi-shortstory asks questions about the identity of the mass and the individual.
Inspired by sci-fi art and movies, the illustrations, that stand alone or frame the text, allow the reader to immense into the story. The pages vary between a narrative and atmospheric imagery only to lead into a large scene as a whole.
