Recto Verso
Everything starts from a chain link, which will make sense only when linked with the front and back with a relationship of dependency. That relationship investigated with mixed style (photography, collage, printing, graphics) and denatured in a book without beginning, middle and end and therefore without the cover and back cover. In which, each page has the recto verso, the "other" side, a side that is totally dependent on its back side, it retains the uniqueness and strength.

Nobek Zeistein: an end to mock
The Nobek Zeistein, American artist / designer / philosopher, a German-Polish origin, living and working in Springfield of Montana in the U.S.. After a 12-year-old path of silence, he will present samples of recent work. The Zeistein deals with successive weanings of pictorial cohesion within the framework of myself and it is. The writing, the movement, the usability are overshadowed and decomposing by uneven bodies with the intetion to constantly reshaping the sphere of non-fictional and real. The place and time are redefined and mutate again. Influences that have consistently drawn by Dada and the philosophical phenomenalism, are reverted to 26 letters of the Latin alphabet. Using distinct points of escape, both linear and the liberal design, Zeistein brings new dimensions to the existential and sociological truth.
