Thurrock 2015 is a mini graphic novel designed by Nils Norman to illustrate the proposals for a redeveloped Thames Gateway region for Essex. Launched last week by the General Public Agency, Norman’s tale follows an investigation field vehicle around a colourful, imaginary Thurrock-of-the-future. Mucking Marsh and East Tilbury dump are re-invented as a Thames flood protection system and a future wind farm. Norman’s work is an attempt to make an otherwise complex and intangible topic infinitely more palatable. Artist Helena Ben-Zenou has designed a poster featuring Polaroid shots of the development area to promote the scheme.
