Second composition of series “Cyclical Narratives”, where symbols and images from graphics of existing book covers are used to forge new stories that speak of love, betrayal, possession, conquest, witchcraft, among other topics. The elliptical positioning suggests a cyclical reading, this means that there are multiple ways of interpreting the visual grammatical body and circulating the piece. These books are previously collected from different places and countries, then sealed and fixed to exclude the original content and physically structure the assembling pieces into one narrative organism.
