We as authors are part of the eclectic and growing group of fans of comics as a medium for telling complex and abstract stories and illuminating interrelationships.
Dr. Julia Schneider: When Julia discovered data and code as tools to solve complex puzzles during her studies of econometrics, she was intrigued. So also during her dissertation in empirical labor economics and in her later research career, she was concerned with puzzles that one wanted to solve with data and code. She prefers puzzles that deal with digital, diverse societies. Additionally, she is a comic aficionada.
Lena Kadriye Ziyal: During her studies of visual communication Lena dealt – vice versa – with the translation of thoughts into images. Her artistic approach is to encrypt complexity using associations of her own perspective and thereby widen the meaning of a specific issue. As a designer and illustrator she offers her skills at the berlin-based content and graphicdesign agency Infotext.
