LITERARY NESTS

They are nests for birds assembled with strips of paper torn off the pages of novels that I have read throughout my life. Each nest is a tangle in which the typographic pages of the book are mixed together with drawings inspired by the events narrated in the book itself. The novel spurs the mental images that recreate the story. As we read, we imagine.

The nests are a vehicle of gestation. In a nest, the life of a bird is gestated. If we establish a parallel, we can say that literature is a metaphorical nest. Through reading, knowledge is developed, ideas are generated, imagination and emotions are stimulated.

The nest, on the other hand, is a knot, a tangle.  From something confusing comes life… The knot within the literary structure represents the most critical moment of the unfolding story.  It is a moment of great tension during which, little by little, the events raised through the introduction are developed. In practical life, the same thing happens: conflict gives rise to change, generating a constant dialectic of order and chaos.
