This collaboratively constructed comic allowed a community of individuals to choose where and how the protagonist moved through her imagined world. As Caroline encounters what appears to be discarded junk waiting to be picked up on the side of the road, the collaborating storytellers were asked to step into her shoes and transform each item, whether it was a paper towel tube, vacuum, or cardboard box, into whatever they could imagine, guiding Caroline on a strange journey. Drawn in stages, I illustrated the story up to the instance where Caroline encountered a new object to transform. At this point I would ask for input from my collaborators and the transformation chosen from the various suggestions would then inform the next stage of the narrative. As the story progresses the reader is also offered this same chance to contribute, free to build their own world in the final pages.
Collaborating storytellers: Carolina Schlenker, Christine Moody, Desa Henn, Joseph Duratinsky, Krista Boyce, Scott Boyce, Mary Robinson, Francisco Schlenker, Richard Frye, Rista Plate, Seth Anglin, Thomas Schlenker, and Tomas Schlenker.
