Victorian DaDa


Victorian DaDa

DeVillo Sloan inspired me to start this group, and I'd like help defining it, and would love to see other examples besides my own. 

This group is dedicated to mail art, perhaps with a time period theme (Pre-Raphaelite, Flapper, Byzantine, Edwardian, even modern day) of an elegant nature spiked with a Dada / Surreal twist. 

Elements can be added as creatively as the artist would like.... Or taken out. Nature is prevalent due to the Romantic floral effect and poetry (often cut & paste) is incorporated. An arm or leg can be truncated and repositioned. Woo Hoo! 

Or anything you feel like.

Thank you, and hope to see you here!

Such amazing art work everyone has!

Thx, Neil. I do a lot of things that are hard copy-digital hybrids, so the scanner still ads the distortion and image degradation that makes copy art so distinctive.

Glitches are the digital equivalent - check out some of DK's glitch art for that.

Nice work DVS, it still has that Xerox element to it that i can't get out of my head! I like the rawness of the copy machine or printer as a tool..

Thx Carl. I still think it's disappointing. You really have the Gin thing down in some of the pieces you've posted. You know, Moan Lisa does Victorian DaDa too. No question, although I doubt Moan would ever come down here. Well, I'll post Moan Lisa stuff that I think is VD too. I don't know exactly what this is other than Moan appropriated it from somewhere. I'm w/ Mim - great work keeping Gin's vision alive.
