EXPERIMENTATION is an experimental book that makes translation coincide with graphic adaptation: four people (two of whom come from another discipline than comics) each write a scenario for an eight-page story with a short narrative text and dialogues. Each scenario is translated and adapted into a comic in four versions by four different comic artists: Arabic, French, English and silent versions (the silent version being the most experimental because the narrative text and dialogues must be translated into drawing).
