REVERSE: an elegiac epoem
REVERSE: an elegiac e-poem (2020-21) results from the collaboration between cyberliterary artist collective wr3ad1ng d1g1t5 (Diogo Marques / João Santa Cruz) and visual artist Daniela Reis during the first 40 days after the Covid-19 pandemic status (March – April 2020).Following a random plus (pre-)combinatorial logic, 40 textual verses and 40 pictorial fragments intertwine in order to provoke a self-reflexive reading of the verse(s) and reverse(s) characterizing the experience of confinement.
Combined, image and text (un)veil a dialogic path that, although necessarily entropic, is made of continuous renewal.
