In this issue, printed in 1925, there are continuous references machinery; a factory the synthesis on the cover leads to a simple pulley lift on the next page and continues on pages 6, 7 and 8. Could refer to Werkman’s printing press, since a new reference to his precarious economic situation is listed with debits and credits on pages 4 and 5.
Continuing with the machinery metaphor, it materializes both formally (a new machine / mechanism formed with ovoid and tubular structures) and metonymically (suggesting the evolution of the traditional concepts of “machine”, toward digital concept -binary base- that has currently) . Both interpretations allow the fundamentals elements to be, again and equal as the benchmark, “0” and “1”.
On the higher plane of the composition, a chromatic counterpoint with small red and orange elements give some complexity to the set opening readings (electronics, pilots, etc.) but above all providing certain rhythm and dynamism to the composition.
