if you got it, good, flaunt it

I learned of Joseph Cornell (American artist and one of the pioneers of assemblage) through a tv show about a year ago and I remember wondering and wondering what
might have inspired a door-to-door salesman to start collecting stuff and putting it in a box. When you think about it, displaying objects in a box is kind of a childish form of self-expression, but then Cornell's boxes strike me as really sad and haunting and not cute or endearing at all. There's something taxidermic about them...but they're so beautiful.

















Totally unrelated but i love pete rock & cl smooth

Ooo thanks for showing me those boxes, its inspired me to do something similar.... and that red lobster with the arrangement of objects... it fits so perfectly.

For a moment, before the pictures loaded and I realised you were talking about the artist, I read his name as Joseph Campbell, and nearly had a moment of major ecstasy. So-En is a fantastic magazine- I can hardly read it, but the images are always superlative.
