Suzanne Treister: NATO The Military Codification System for the Ordering of Everything in the World
Library Shelf Location 18.TREI
Publication Date 2008
Description The NATO Codification System (NCS) is a military inventory which is both complex and comprehensive, using at its base a four-digit coding system to identify, classify and number items of supply. Since discovering a file on the NATO Codification System in the offices of a defence spares company in London, Suzanne Treister became fascinated by the nature of the codification, using it to develop an encyclopaedic series of watercolours. The book contains 186 of these intricate still life renditions of diverse objects, including: machinery, radios, nuclear bombs, musical instruments, toiletries, leather shoes, combat ships, games, camouflage equipment, clothing, laundry equipment and pyrotechnics among others.
