A LAD Y in this city gives vent to her feelings on the use of the horse-shoe form of
ornament as follows : " One cannot walk far in the upper part of New York without
seeing this horrid object — toilworn, inildewed. suggestive of all things foul. With

contrast with their delicacy of tint and texture, to exaggerate its own foul
perfection of detail. That a diseased fancy should create such a piece of
grossness is not ...

0 that my mind in mental darkness pent, Had no perception, no distinction known,
Of fair, or foul, perfection, or defect, Nor thought conceived of proud pre-
eminence !

La parte principale del progetto è composta di due visualizzazioni di un'
immaginaria città del futuro chiamata Kandor, trovate nei fumetti di Superman.
Come nel fumetto, questa città, in dimensioni ridotte, si trova sotto una campana
di vetro nella segreta "Fortezza della Solitudine" di Superman. È un promemoria
costante della sua terra natale perduta e a livello metaforico funge da simbolo
del suo rapporto alienato col pianeta da lui ora occupato3. 1. M. Kelley, Foul

CHAPTER IX: That this Image is both fair and foul whilst it is in this Life here,
though it be reformed; and of the Differences of the secret Feelings of those that
be reformed and those that be not FAIR is a man's soul, and foul is a man's soul.
Fair, inasmuch as it is reformed in faith to the likeness of God. But foul, inasmuch
as it is mingled with sensual feelings and inordinate motions of this image of sin.
Foul it is without, like a beast; fair within, like an Angel. Foul in the feeling of
sensuality, ...

Foul Perfection: Thoughts on Caricature MIKE KELLEY The term "caricature"
calls to mind the shoddy street-corner portrait, comic depictions of celebrities that
line the walls of bars, or the crude political cartoons in the opinion section of the

the "educated" art lover. In part, perhaps, because of these strong negative
connotations, numerous artists have attempted to draw caricature into the sphere
of fine art.
