Short summary
This paper looks at the possibilities and difficulties of producing short comic stories with interviewees in order to find out about the way in which they remember that past and anticipate the future. The study this paper is based on was conducted by three artists and one geographer with people who live close to a planned development corridor in Kenya. The results suggest that the presented method can offer unique insights by making abstract ideas of the future more concrete.
