Canto 28.21: A not-quite divided-self taking the measure of the schismatic who pulled himself apart in Hell’s ninth ditch. [The set includes Wm Blake’s image of a schismatic.]

While I was all agog with gazing at him,
He stared at me and, as his two hands pulled
His chest apart, cried, "Look how I rip myself!
[Canto 28, lines 28-30, translated by James Finn Cotter.]

Simple, but oh so distinct and terrifying!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
ps) I have not made so many comments this time, been a while, you know. But most of these sets have ended up in collection VI, I think we are close to VII now..

"PANTON METRON ANTHROPOS" This is what this set seems to cry in silence....
 
Man is the measure of all things, said Protagoras of Abdera, but we could say that there is no measure. Measuring is a human concept that makes us feel safe, but life is autonomous, and each measured by its scale.
As beings with the ability to measure, we can do it. However being imperfect beings, we can shoeing or to lie. Therefore every man is the measure that best fits that man. A being only knows its measure, as its lived it. The man is no measure of anything. A man only knows how little he knows ... Hugs Harry,

Utopia Parkway

Utopia Parkway

Art sets inspired by the magical collage and shadow boxes of Joseph Cornell. I've tried very hard not to go and find images of Cornell's work and clip them to Polyvore. That would be too easy and that is not the intention of this group. It is about creating sets with Cornell's style in mind. Check out his work here.http://www.ibiblio.org/wm/paint/auth/cornell/ and here

Think ballet, birds, boxes, dreams, bubbles, bottles, longing, found objects, star charts, old letters, old Hollywood stars...

INAPPROPRIATION

INAPPROPRIATION

This site is Polyvore’s “salon des refuses”—an exhibition space for collages rejected, despised, or ignored by decorous members of other groups. It is a place for works inappropriately and un-tastefully appropriated—a place of obscure meaning and tough truth. No announcements, no contests, no invitations to join will be found on this site. Inappropriation may be interpreted as using others' property improperly to make new property with different properties.
 
If you feel you belong do not join.
