This book is a study on shape and background or counter-shape. It also represents the 12 months of the year and the facets of day and night First, I drew an alphabet with a Folded pen on a sheet of paper, then, I scan this image into my computer and through the Adobe Photoshop program I played with it applying concepts of translation, rotation and speculation limiting myself to reproduce the same alphabet no more than three times on each page. Always trying to acquire new shapes and finding new shapes in the counter-space delimited by the new layering. I did 12 different images and reproduce them in a large scale in negative (night) and in a small scale in positive (day).
