' . . . looking more closely at the parallel courses of modern art (Dadaism especially)
and Science fiction in providing a narrative voice and a performance stage for contemporary science.'

Joseph Cornell - Planet Set - Tête Etoilée, Giuditta Pasta (dédicace) - 1950

"Joseph Cornell's 'Giuditta Pasta'  is perhaps one of the most intriguing and enigmatic works of art of the 20th century.

In a famous essay, the Italian art historian Maurizio Calvesi brilliantly unveils in it the manifold citations

of Renaissance paintings and disguised references to traditional iconology.


Both images are linked in this way to the alchemical tradition (the stripping of the bride is a metaphor for the

philosopher stone in the writings of the 17th century alchemist Solidonius). Even without digging into the Grand

Verre as Grand Oeuvre, or alchemical Opus, this work of art has an enormous evocative power, due precisely to its

hints of multiple hidden meanings and difficulty of interpretation. Thus, a very brief apparition is the appropriate

way for a great mystery to manifest itself (just think of the divine apparitions in various religious mythologies).


In certain 'critical narratives' on Marcel Duchamp's Art, William Gibson, a writer, chooses this

particular piece of art, on which Duchamp worked for a good ten years, creating a 'wormhole' connecting

the future to the past and the cyberpunk movement to the tradition of the avant garde: an instant message

delivered to the reader in an almost subliminal, but extremely powerful, form."
