From The New Theological Jokes follows the work of 2017 entitled From the Old Theological Jokes. A series of appropriated diagrams focused on the splicing of hidden patterns of human construction of reality and perception in general. Each diagram is intended to facilitate orientation in complex relationships between the displayed and final display. At the same time, they are the trapped in algorithmic loops of thought patterns, from which it is not easy or even impossible to get out.
