In the second volume of the Nude Descending Staircase series the protagonist travels in a chrome train and crashes on a polkadot floor. She descends an erratic spiral staircase through one of the polkadots. The staircase leads to a corridor, which takes her to the cockpit of a spaceship. She merges with the spaceship, enters into hyperspace and lands on a sulfuric planet. The girl drives a DeLoren to the edge of a canyon.
In art there are numerous recurring themes that have become neo-archetypes. One of the most intriguing is the Nude Descending Staircase.
In 1912, inspired by Eadweard Muybridge’s photographic motion studies, Marcel Duchamp created “Nude Descending a Staircase No. 2”.
On a weekly basis, from 2008 till the end of 2012, Faiyaz Jafri published images for NDS, a graphic novel inspired by Duchamp’s piece, incorporating other neo-archetypes.
This book is the second one in a series of 13 volumes of the NDS saga.
*neo-archetypes are archetypes that don’t take a generation to form, but occur due to accessibility of unlimited data.
