NDS07 starts with our heroin evaporating into thin air. Her molecules restructure into a female shaped chrome spaceship.
Inside the head of the spaceship sits a green nude girl. The space ship lands on top of the New York World Trade Center. The green girl exits the spaceship and enters the building through the roof exit. She falls through a hole into a tree. She jumps out of the tree and as she touches the floor she turns into a tree.
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 seventh 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.
