Item description for NATO: The Military Codification System for the Ordering of Everything in the World by Suzanne Treister...
The NATO codification system exists to describe and classify large parts of the world around us. Items as diverse as perfume, battleships, animals, electronic equipment and musical instruments are ordered and represented in a comprehensible and accessible way to the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation so that they can be articulated and used within military syntax. Contemporary artist Suzanne Treister became fascinated and inspired by the nature of the codification, and began to develop a vast series of watercolours representing her own visual interpretation of the NATO system. In NATO: The Military Codification System for the Ordering of Everything in the World the paintings themselves are intricate still life renditions of objects from the world that surrounds us. Treister's beautifully crafted illustrations explore the notion that there is a scientific and philosophical teleology at work in the act of such representation, leading to the increase of our wisdom and understanding. Following on from her previous work, the extraordinary HEXEN 2039: New Military-Occult Technologies for Psychological Warfare, NATO showcases Suzanne Treister's vivid imagination as well as her unique artistic talent.
