      Nelson Larroque‘s final degree project, made under the supervision of Peter Cook at ESA in Paris, consists literally in a device designed and built purposedly with the function of drawing a 10cm line. The disproportion between the size of the machine, the effort, the tools involved, and the actual result is evidently an absurdist rhetorical device questioning logics and conventions.

    "People who see a drawing in the New Yorker will think automatically that it's funny, because it is a cartoon. If they see it in a museum, they think it is artistic, and if they find it in a fortune cookie, they think it is a prediction." ~ Saul Steinberg by Inge Morath 1956

    Chalchiuhtlicue ("She of the Jade Skirt") was an Aztec goddess of love, beauty, youth, lakes, rivers, seas, streams, horizontal waters, storms, and baptism. She was also a Goddess of Childbirth and protector of labouring women. Chalchiutlicue's association with both water and fertility is derived from the Aztecs' common association of the womb with waters. This dual role gave her both life-giving and a life-ending role in Aztec mythology.
