HOW DO I GET OFF THIS HORSE?
BW: You have left Nantasket Beach with your little collection of this year’s rocks – a much smaller set than in previous years, I’ve noted – why are you still making stones-to-horses sets?
HL: It’s a leftover, made a few days ago, before I left the beach.
BW: So why are you showing it?
HL: You know that I feel compelled to present almost everything I make – everything I make that I think is sort-of okay. 
BW: Alas, you are hopeless. I hope there are no more in your draft file.
HL: There are -- several more.
BW: Oh no!
[Each summer as I walk Nantasket Beach certain stones catch my eye and whisper things such as ‘I’m beautify, collect me,’ ‘I’m ugly, collect me,’ ‘I show the history of this planet, collect me.’ I collect stones only if they agree to transform themselves into horses – that’s what stones did when I was a kid in Idaho. The pretty rocks I collected on Idaho’s sandy hills became horses in the play ranch I constructed under my grandmother’s apple tree. Later, much later, memories of those stones transformed themselves into horses in the pages of my artist-books and folios. Now those pages merge with Nantasket stones and shadows in Polyvore sets.]

Cabinets of curiosities in history:
Cabinets of curiosities (also known as Wunderkammer, Cabinets of Wonder, or wonder-rooms) were encyclopedic collections of types of objects whose categorical boundaries were, in Renaissance Europe, yet to be defined. Modern science would categorize the objects included as belonging to natural history (sometimes faked), geology, ethnography, archaeology, religious or historical relics, works of art (including cabinet paintings) and antiquities.
(Wikipedia)

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.

Contests

Haunting Monochrome

Haunting Monochrome

There is a certain stillness to a monochromatic image that I find very haunting. So for this contest I would like to see all of your haunting monochromes. (Monochromatic = an image created with shades of one color.)
 
New or old, one week, no limit, 12 winners!
