A nude girl embarks on a downward journey descending numerous staircases into fantastical worlds.
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”.
Faiyaz Jafri has published images inspired by Duchamp’s piece, incorporating other neo-archetypes, every Monday since 2008.
This is a film of the first 1008 pages.
