Memories Of Now proposes a series of scenarios placed in the infinity
of space and a number of nonlocalized planets, suspended metaphors of
regular determinations of existence.

At the heart of these scenarios is the woman-cosmonaut Olga and her mini-epic space story. It's a parallel world where the only possible events are the inner adventures of the mind, consciousness and tribulations of emotional drama. With a broad and everchanging atmosphere of sounds and visuals, Memories Of Now is a multi-faceted, chameleonic comic strip that goes beyond linear storytelling and invites the user to create his/her own narrative.

Michaela Konrad lives as a freelance artist in Vienna and in Santa Cruz (Tenerife). She studied at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna and at the Centro de Grabado Contemporaneo in Tenerife; she got her grafic art education from the illustrator Tommi Kuehberger.
