The Digital Cut-up

For assignment 2, I chose text from “classics of Mountain and Sea” and the official description of alchemy symbol “ouroboros” to see what can be created between snake related oriental and western symbols.
“classics of Mountain and Sea”
A snake with one head and two bodies inhabited Hunxi shan, some hundred eighty li down a mountain path from Beiyue shan to the south. While its name sounds somewhat similar to Feiwei, the strange animal that lived on Taihua shan, recorded in the Western Mountains section, the Feiyi snake could not be more different. It glided along the ground by interweaving its two bodies in a braiding motion that left a distinctive series of figure eights in its wake. It did, however, share something with the Taihua shan Feiwei, in that it created droughts wherever it appeared. The connection could well not be coincidental, but no record that the two creatures are related exists.
The ouroboros is an ancient symbol depicting a serpent or dragon eating its own tail. The ouroboros entered Western tradition via ancient Egyptian iconography and the Greek magical tradition. It was adopted as a symbol in Gnosticism and Hermeticism and most notably in alchemy. The term derives from Ancient Greek οὐροβόρος, from οὐρo oura 'tail' plus -βορός -boros '-eating'. The ouroboros is often interpreted as a symbol for eternal cyclic renewal or a cycle of life, death, and rebirth; the snake's skin-sloughing symbolizes the transmigration of souls. The snake biting its own tail is a fertility symbol in some religions: the tail is a phallic symbol and the mouth is a yonic or womb-like symbol.
