Canto 25:44. Agnello Brunelleschi being transformed by the serpent named Cianfa de’Donat—their two heads become one and their bodies blend into a single form, # 12.

It wrapped his stomach with its middle feet
And with its forefeet pinned him by the arms;
Then sank its teeth in one cheek, then the other.

It spread its hind feet down about his thighs
And thrust the tail out between his legs
And at his back pulled it up straight again.

Never did ivy cling to any tree
So tightly as that horrendous beast
Twined its limbs around and through the sinner’s.

Then the two stuck together as if made
Of hot wax and mixed their colors so
Neither one nor other seemed what once they were:
[Canto 25, lines 52-63, translated by James Finn Cotter.]

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.
