American craftsman and stone carver Joseph Cornell (1903-72) was dominatingly a gatherer of trinkets, old prints, photos, music scores, dramatic memorabilia, and French writing, who by 1936, set up a mark style of his wonderful array with these assortments. In the wake of losing his dad at the young age of 14, he moved with his mom and three kin, to the Queens area of New York City. His trademark works were the cases he molded out of wood (like “Medici Slot Machine”), glass, and multitudinous items and photographs. Joseph gathered his unrefined components from the New York City’s old fashioned and used shops, which helped him in communicating a trite and superb sensation to his craft.
Cornell’s smaller than usual wooden boxes, carefully loaded up with grouped items, were to a great extent encased with glass, conferring a three-dimensional look. Chosen cautiously, these items held no innate worth alone, yet when pooled together, unveiled a more profound implication. His muddled and novel juxtapositions were elegiac, inspiring connections to ‘Surrealist’ qualities, like secret, dream, the inner mind, dreams, and so on Joseph’s selection of subjects was unbound, for example, Hollywood stars, soothsaying, birds, artful dance, show, travel, Medicis of the Renaissance, specialists, verse (Emily Dickinson), and the universe. His materials were additionally patterns from papers, butterfly wings, marbles, and the pieces of backdrop, gifts and memorabilia, sky outlines, old commercials, broken crystal, music boxes, feathers, metal springs, maps, shells, mirrors, and plastic ice blocks. “Medici Slot Machine” is one of the first boxes Cornell designed in quite a while storm cellar studio.
“Medici Slot Machine” is a fantasy machine display, in light of a youthful ‘Renaissance’ sovereign, Piero de Medici of Florence. It consolidates the sovereign’s astounding world with a contemporary candy machine. He added numerous moment representations along the edges that resemble the clasps of film, some of which are of a similar young fellow in the picture. Joseph likewise embedded a framework of wires over the pictures, which resembles the outside of windowpanes. Near the base is a glass rack, beneath which are little window-like openings with toys in them, while the midpoint showed a compass.

Started in the mid 1940s, this case compared ‘Renaissance’ and the ‘Extravagant’ representations of kids with collaged components handpicked from promenade games and gambling machines. The “Medici Slot Machines” had moveable parts, like the marble, which slide to and fro in the base compartment. Cornell expected his “Medici Slot Machine” to entice the spectator for playing it. Until recently, rather than being a game, this incomprehensible box rather projects psychosomatic intricacy. Cornell’s selection of items had an obvious individual touch, and his works evoked a mind-set of nostalgic daze in his watcher.

In carrying exact request to his specialty, he was making up for the uproar of his own life. Cornell kept on residing in the house in Queens until his demise in 1972.

Today, even after around 37 years of his downfall, Cornell is the acknowledged expert of gathering workmanship.
