Circus du Psyche is a project inspired by Joseph Cornell. The box constructions consists of objects I have collected over time. I hoped to create magical little worlds, where reality is suspended in a dream like atmosphere. From the outset these constructed worlds were conceived to be presented as tintypes to further enchant and enhance the sense of a found treasure of times past. I then decided to let the color to remain to convey the flavor of a garish and seedy circus life, a modern twist on the hand painted tintype.
Homage to Cornell
