Judith needs a minute …

29 Sep

A minute to explain …

Ray Denhison, “Storefront. Construct with the Head of Holofernes,” 2011, photo, http://www.architecturastlouis.blogspot.com/2011/06/construct-with-head-of-holofernes.html

… make that an hour.  Or two.

The artist attached the labels:  architectura, architecture, art, broadway, carondelet, classical, equivalent, fulcanelli, masterpiece, powerglide, room with a view, st. louis, temple, the classics have might.

I understand the association with architectura, architecture, art, classical, masterpiece and temple.   I even understand st. louis, broadway, carondelet.   I might even make a connection to “room with a view” and “the classics have might.”  And yes, I perceive the significance of the red brick facing on the building.

But I am stymied by:

  • Fulcanelli.  During the early 20th century, Fulcanelli was the pseudonym of a French alchemist and esoteric author, whose identity is still debated – possibly Eugène Canseliet.  He is thought to have survived World War II and disappeared completely after the Liberation of Paris.  His claim to fame:  the successful transmutation of 100 grams of lead into gold.
  • Powerglide – a two-speed automatic transmission designed by General Motors,  available primarily on Chevrolet from January 1950 through 1973.  The first automatic transmission offered in a low-priced automobile.
  • equivalent – equal in force, amount, or value;  equal in area or volume but not superposable;  like in signification or import.

Suggestions on this this relates to Holofernes??
