Fine Estate

Ti vedo: i capelli lunghi e rossi
sciolti sulla lucente seta
che gioca ad illuminarsi
sulla tua pelle pallida.

Hai sul tuo viso le scaglie
Della grazia esplosa
Insieme al big bang

-(Bum).

Sei tu, stupenda esplosione
che stanotte sento nel buio
e che spaventa i cani nella notte
e che incanta i giovani che lungo le coste
t’inseguono nell’oscuritá esplosa
nei miracolosi colori di fine estate.

A Dachshund Collage A Day with @acidinvader

Before he became a prolific, semi-anonymous creator of dachshund-themed collages, David Carnie’s biggest claim to fame was coining the term “bromance” in the mid-90s. (“I’m sorry,” he says.) For the past year and a half, however, David has produced a dachshund collage nearly every single day under the pseudonym @acidinvader—an anagram of his name.

David began collaging as an exercise in creativity after receiving a daily dachshund calendar as a gift from his parents. “At the time, I had a soul-crushing job that was rendering me mentally bankrupt,” David says, “so I gave myself an assignment: make one piece of art every day for one year.” A year came and went, and he kept collaging.

“I like the random juxtapositions that collages create,” explains David. “That’s part of the ‘exercise’: letting go.” But that doesn’t mean his collages are completely devoid of deeper meaning: “There’s the occasional smarty-pants reference to literature, mythology, fairy tales or music.”
