NDS05 Nude Descending Staircase

April 24, 2014

In NDS05 Nude Descending Staircase a mushroom-girl hybrid stumbles and falls down a glass chimney into a glasshouse and dies.
Another version of the girl cuts herself out of the dead body. She walks out of the glasshouse, down a RGB lit rotating staircase into a room with descending random RGB colored cubes. At the bottom of the room she sinks with a cube into a dark lake.

The story behind NDS05 Nude Descending Staircase

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 fifth 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.
