13th March 2013: Initial research for 13.

As a group we have set up a group pinterest board to where we can gather all our images up together. here is a link to my pinterest board which allows you to access our 175 board which has all of our images so far.
From this we explored different lucky and unlucky charms, and other superticoius things that all in all relate to the number 13.
Superstition is the belief that one event leads to cause another without any physical process linking the 2 events.

-Black cat

-Four Leaf Clover

-rabbits foot.

One for sorrow,
Two for joy,
Three for a girl,
Four for a boy,
Five for silver,
Six for gold,
Seven for a secret never to be told.

-horse shoe
-wish bone

Walking underneath ladder.

Spilling salt

broken mirror.

-tarot cards– with this the 13th tarot card (XII) is actually the death card.

-Peacock- evil eye

- find a penny, pick it up.

-crossing fingers

-weeji boards

-voodoo dolls ( which i found out, that they can either invoke blessings or curses. The coloured pins have different meanings. Red= power, yellow=sucess, white=healing, purple=spirituality, green=money, blue= love, black= repell attracting negative energy.)

From this i explored like witches, and how they have cabinets of spells, to which i came across “Cabinate of Curoiusities”. This related me to the artist: joseph Cornell. Cornell’s most characteristic art works were boxed assemblages created from found objects. These are simple boxes, usually fronted with a glass pane, in which he arranged surprising collections of photographs or Victorian bric a brac, in a way that combines the formal austerity of Constructivism with the lively fantasy of Surrealism.

With this research i am going to do a few illustrations and drawings and bring these with me tomorrow when i meet our group to discuss all of our research.
