Dada and the Machine
Dada first came into existence during the onset of the Industrial Age, when indoor plumbing changed city life, and The Machine became prevalent. Many writers and artists were interested in how machines would affect humanity, like Karel Kapek coining the word "robot" in "RUR," and Fritz Lang in "Metropolis." The Dadaists, tho, had a positive view of the machine, they saw beauty in it, and embraced the mechanization of society, creating art utilizing mechanical images. They saw life in machinery, and metaphors for sexuality, human energy, and social interactions. They also saw an opportunity to get art into the hands of the masses; high quality art prints became far more affordable; the non-wealthy can own priceless masterpieces. The Dadaists wanted art for the masses - they wanted to create art libraries, where people could borrow paintings for a couple weeks.

Recently, another Devious Artist gave me a Premium Membership. I was so moved, I cried. I'd never had anything like that happen to me before, to have someone I'd only recently met online, like my work so much, that she decided she needed to support it. I am just so grateful to :iconcjheery: She said I could manipulate some of her photos, and I'm working on some projects, so look forward to that
Here is some work of her work that I love:
