RV.PAPERS #09: 8.00 AM / 15.00 PM

Printed in a limited numbered edition of 100, an artzine curated for RV.PAPERS with the artist Luis Urculo.

8.00 AM / 15.00 PM explores the physical structure of printed matter. The title represents the time difference between Mexico City and Madrid, the two places where Urculo lives. Urculo uses the publication’s construction as a physical manifestation of the temporal divide between the two cities. Objects are bent, mirrored, broken, or otherwise altered by passing through the center of each spread— breaking the illusion of synchronous existence.
