A poetry beyond the Age
A poetry for the beginnings
of the Age of Complexity Consciousness...
beyond the "Age of Manifestos".**
The Journal is a reflection as well a poetry about culture of visuality, and
a free interpretation of several differences and transitions among Puristic aspects
of Linearity as well of Emotional aspects of Non Linearity as a result of experiencing
an increasing Consciousness of Complexity, in today's life, one of the most complex times

It is a contribution to envision the art process either as a linear-non linear coding ritual
or as grouped NL-L coding-decoding one which original source is both the poetry of the real,

processes with an extended linear and non linear sense, and useful towards
understanding Complex art as an art of transition for a new era.
