Soap Bubble Set











Our professional section, Soap Bubble Set, showcases one visual artist and one writer and is named after a series of assemblages by the well-known modernist sculptor and filmmaker, Joseph Cornell. Poetically and visually associative, Soap Bubble Set evokes the transient quality of soap bubbles, childhood play and imagination, the ever-changing nature of the artistic and literary world, and, for Cornell, contemplation of the cosmos. To find the universe in a soap bubble and the “world in a grain of sand,” as William Blake put it, is to see the possibilities that always surround us.
