►Greek Mythology: “Mnemosyne” / “Collaboration with Resa McConaghy and Christy Birmingham” 💫.-

Joy fills me as I announce to you the official publication of the collaboration between talented costume designer Resa McConaghy, mythologicy guru Aquileana, and I.

For the project, I wrote a new poem called “Remembering Mnemosyne” and you can will find it in the post I am reblogging here from Aquileana’s site. The project theme is “Mnemosyne,” the goddess of memory.

What a glorious experience! Resa’s gown is stunning and Aquileana’s words are influential. I hope you enjoy the finished collaboration as much as we enjoyed creating it!

Love Christy

Mnemosyne/ Μνημοσύνη (Roman equivalent: Moneta(0)) was a Titaness, goddess of Memory (1) and the inventor of Words (2)

Mnemosyne was also a goddess of time. She represented the rote memorisation required, before the introduction of writing, to preserve the stories of history and sagas of myth. She was the daughter of Uranus (Heaven) and Gaia (Earth). Uranus and Gaia were the parents of the first generation of Titans, consisting of twelve elder gods/goddesses, being Mnemosyne included among them.

    Christy & Aquileana,
    Wow, I’m calming down a bit here, but this is such a joy. This is perhaps more fun than 1 person aught to be allowed to have… but I’m having it! Love to both of you!
    Reas xoxo

    When you three collaborate, you do it in some style, I love the mix of styles and your poem is wonderful, bringing the spirit of Mnemosyne into the 21st century with your stylistic mixings. Fantastic!

    I agree and I’ve said it before: so grateful for you three. I think it’s very inspiring how all three of your works are very industrious and kind-hearted and I am quite inspired by you all. Kind of at a loss for words at the moment, but mnemosyne really highlights why we need those memories and words, and pictures and dresses for our perfect fantasies made real.
