Le Cadavre Exquis

Exquisite corpse, also known as exquisite cadaver (from the original French term cadavre exquis) or rotating corpse, is a method by which a collection of words or images is collectively assembled. Each collaborator adds to a composition in sequence, either by following a rule (e.g. "The adjective noun adverb verb the adjective noun") or by being allowed to see the end of what the previous person contributed. - wikipedia

I remember seeing this short film a long time ago. Basically, this little machine sees a television with a pretty doll face. She wants to be just like what she sees on t.v, and changes her appearance. The standards get higher and higher (literally), but she tries earnestly.

You can see what happens in the end.This video leaves a powerful message about how our standards of beauty are too high and soon it becomes out of reach.

As one of the comments of the video says

"She was original but she died a copy."

One of the features I’m most excited about in the upcoming New York-themed issue of Pink Mince (order your copy now!) is a selection of photos of men in the West Village in the late 70s by Leonard Fink, whose work is archived at the LGBT Community Center on West 13th Street. I chose a mix of images that felt like they really captured some magical moments of a lost time in the neighborhood, but I may have curated the selection even better than I realized.
I was showing my friend Sina a preview of the issue, and he immediately caught something in an image from 1978 that I missed. Look at that detail above. That’s Robert Mapplethorpe, isn’t it? Suddenly, my photo feature of a lost New York seems that much more poignant.

Illustrations for Edgar Allan Poe by Harry Clarke

Book illustrator and Irish stained glass artist Harry Clarke’s illustrations for Edgar Allan Poe’s Tales of Mystery and Imagination:
