Description
Scope/Content: "In 25 'chapters', Carrión described all manner of human relationships simply by using names, which he arranged in ever-varying typographical relationships. The names approach one another, sometimes blend together and then separate again. Arguments is a sublime interpretation of the statement that he published that same year: "All existing things are structures. Everything that happens is a metaphor. Every metaphor is a meeting point of two structures."--Metropolis M. magazine, 2010, number 5.
Technique: Artist's book.
