Joseph Cornell

A couple of years ago Carmi gave me a book called Joseph Cornell's Theater of the Mind: Selected Diaries, Letters, and Files. I have several other books on him, but this is the only one that focuses on his writing and I love it.
My favorite line of Cornell’s is: “…day/and I gathered fragments of blue dense.” For a while now I’ve been trying to think of a way to express these words visually, and I think this ATC is the closest I can come to it. Of course I just had to include the Medici princess (Bia) that Cornell features in one of his well-known assemblages.
