A lot of fuss has been made over Aesa’s latest line, Machine de terre, but the Greek myth reference points (Athena in a breastplate! Goddesses in armor! So boring, so cliche) just don’t stand. I see something that predates Greek mythology, something primordial, prelanguage – after all, the line is called ‘machine of the earth’ (I think). It’s precognitive. I see ancient, writhing arthropods & new age healing crystals, organic asymmetry and roughly hewn minerals, fresh from the dirt.
