… from the darkness

…from the darkness spread across the face of the multiverse, the universe emerging again, twisting and turning, taking form and shape, never too much, never too late….

Art, Dada & Me 19/02/16

WP_20160219_1000

So why am I fascinated by the Swiss born “dada” movement?

Ironically, in the Yoruba language “dada” is used to describe someone born with locked hair or “dreadlocks”

(There are other meanings in the Yoruba language that I will investigate and share in future posts! Eg. I believe there is a Dada in relation to Shango the god of thunder!)

Apophenia is defined as the human ability or tendency to confer or see meaningful patterns in random data.

Dadaism coupled with apophenia allows the opportunity for art expression from a variety of random sources! It gives an artist permission to be playful yet exploratory with art processing. It also allows art to have an array of varying interpretations!

I’m toyin with new phrases such as “neo soul dadaism” or “afro dada” to represent my current practice. Or just simply leave it be as “dada” but with the Yoruba accents’ attached!!! 😊

What if?

WP_20160217_7614So:

What if we were given a blank canvass?
What if we were given a blank universe? Or a chance to start over?
To write our own story?

Or

What if life is a series of random events?
How much control do we have over the universe?
Is the “law” of attraction really true?

What about alchemy, experimenting, and art processing?!
What if we were given a blank universe?
And God left us to it?

What would we do?
