Description

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 first 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.

Faiyaz Jafri is an artist and filmmaker born and raised in rural Holland of Dutch and Pakistani decent. Jafri’s art explores Jungian archetypes in the modern world. In addition he searches for neo-archetypes in mass media and global popular culture.
His work has an almost clinically engineered feel to it without becoming cold or soulless. It is this contrast between unnatural perfection and the fact that his work conveys a strong emotion that makes his work at times haunting but always strangely human.
