Feedback from tutorial
I learnt today, it’s been 100 years since the Dada movement (1916 – 1924)
My Xmas cabbage as is (slightly stretched in word) was a winner over the processed pieces that evolved from it!
I was quite surprised that the initial photo with the holes in it contrasted against the wall sparked the most interest from my tutors and peers.
It seemed to portray different emotions depending on which way up it was placed, allowing it to be interpreted from different perspectives.
A comparison was also made to an evil eye montage done of John Major!!
I see the application of simplicity and that sometimes art can actually be the initial object as seen through the artist 🎨 eye.
This elicits varying responses from viewers therein the terms conceptual and minimalist art used to describe art.
So the “nonsensical” characterised by the dada movement is conferred with meaning and becomes art!
