* Jeleton is a team to operate in iconographic, literary, musical repertoires. To propose self-taught practices and the publication of provisional results for the debate. To take the authorship to inexperience situations, humor, appropriation. To disperse the results in space, time and distribution channels, making it difficult to deactivate them by the presentation context.
