RE \ VERSO: e-poema elegíaco (2020-21) results from a collaboration between the collective wr3ad1ng d1g1t5 (Diogo Marques / João Santa Cruz) and the painter Daniela Reis during the first 40 days after Covid- 19 (March - April 2020).
Following a random logic, 40 verses and 40 pictorial fragments intertwine in order to provoke a self-reflective reading of the verse (s) and reverse (s) that characterize the confinement experience. Combined, image and text (re) reveal a dialogical path that, although necessarily entropic, is made of continuous renewal.
