In NDS06 Nude Descending Staircase our ever descending heroin dives into a lake and into a black void, through a ceramic CMYK construct landing on a building made out of colored blocks.
A giant naked woman walks by and makes the structure collapse and our heroin crashes on the ground. Following the giant she encounters a square pit with a staircase. She descends it and arrives on the lower back of a giant nude woman. She descends a staircase that starts between the buttocks and spans between the upper legs.

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.
