So.... I am involved, so to speak, in a collaborative art project right now. I was invited to join 12 women who are all movers and shakers in the collage world, to do a collage/assemblage round robin. We mail our object with 12 pages in it to the next person on the list. Each month we work on a different Archetype, the Teacher, the Healer, the Crone, the Muse, the Empress... you get the idea. So which archetype is a Slot machine? The Empress? The Lover? The Warrior?
