Medici Slot Machine
By Mark Brownell
Tarragon Theatre (2006)
Summary: Medici Slot Machine is a surrealistic look at the life of American artist Joseph Cornell. Cornell is famous for his collage boxes of dime-store objects. He excelled at turning the ordinary into the sacred. In real life, Joseph Cornell was a recluse who used his art to escape his family, his sterile suburban life, and his own psychological demons. Bringing precise order to his art was a way of triumphing over the chaos of his private life. This play chronicles that triumph.
