Cornell’s other boxes.

Cornell basement

Hans Namuth, Joseph Cornell’s Cellar Workshop at 3708 Utopia Parkway, New York, 1969, photograph.

a diary journal repository laboratory,
picture gallery, museum, sanctuary,
observatory, key… the core of a labyrinth,
a learning house for dreams and visions.

Joseph Cornell (not on the collection of found objects and materials in his basement but) on a file he kept on one of his finished boxes, quoted in Rikki Ducornet, The Monstrous and the Marvelous.
