Frothy Nothings (Jay’s Dada Art)

 

Dada Jay

Welcome to the repository for Jay’s Dada Art … henceforth to be known as Jay’s Frothy Nothings or DadaJ. I also like the expressions “Shoofies in the Doorway” and Dada Vista. Mainly, however, it’s all just dada.

Some of these images were created contextually to written posts on this site (see links noted below). Some of them just capture this Outraged Bohemian’s creativity, and, of course, the pervading madness inherent in the logic of our times.

Caveat (i.e., viewer discretion advised): All art is political. The same applies to Anti-Art. Context for these images are provided by zeigeist and various inspirational aphorisms granted by other dadas, such as:

  • “We, the founders of Dada-movement try to give time its own reflection in the mirror. – Kurt Schwitters
  • “Freedom: Dada Dada Dada, a roaring of tense colours, and interlacing of opposites and of all contradictions, grotesques, inconsistencies: LIFE.” – Tristan Tzara
  • “We do not wish to imitate nature, we do not wish to reproduce. We want to produce. We want to produce the way a plant produces its fruit, not depict. We want to produce directly, not indirectly. Since there is not a trace of abstraction in this art we call it concrete art.” – Hans Arp
  • “Art has nothing to do with taste. Art is not there to be tasted.” – Max Ernst
  • “I don’t believe in art. I believe in artists.” -Marcel Duchamp
  • “What is generally termed reality is, to be precise, a frothy nothing.” – Hugo Ball

This page will be updated regularly as new dada is produced. Please check back often when you have nothing better to do. Thank you for visiting this page. Please go forth and be transmogrified. And remember kiddies, Dada Saves.
