Imitation of Life

I've been thinking about Armando Reveron, the Venezuelan painter who made life sized dolls and used them as his artists models. I think a lot about Dare Wright, who wrote books about dolls that sometimes seemed more real to her than people. There are so many faces that I glance at every day, inanimate objects transformed by the simple fact that they mimic breathing life, and animated by everything I've projected onto them.
