Käthe Wenzel:

Cartoonorama -

drawing on demand: participatory social cartoon mapping

1. Interview and Drawing

Interviews with citizens, activists, students, local politicians:
What are your ideas for the city of the future? What are your wishes, your dreams for it? What would you like to change here and now
?

2. Internetmap

Sketches developed during the interviews are re-drawn in pen and ink, then coloured on the computer, and finally published on a map on the internet together with quotations from the participants.

 

3. Hiking Track

A hiking track with signs or stickers with QR codes links the images back to the city space: Parallel visions for where you are standing can be downloaded by mobile phone for a comparison between reality and possiblity.

How do you imagine the museum of the future?

- that's what Kaethe Wenzel askeded visitors at the Berlin Museum of Technology. She has translated the answers into drawings which are now part of an interactive internet panorama.

The "Images of Tomorrow" are on display open air at the "Ladestraße" - where the future Museum of Technology is under construction.

"An airplane cockpit would be interesting. I know those only from films. There are 300 buttons… maybe with an explanation what all the buttons are for.
The best would be if the whole thing were a flight simulator. Not like the ones you know, those with a joystick, but a real cockpit where you can sit inside."
