And Pere Ubu was responsible for half the European art at the time.  Jarry sure loved his bicycle, didn't he?  And ate multi-course meals backwards, starting with dessert.

Alfred Jarry author of Pere Ubu is also responsible for the discovery of 'Pataphysics ...

In the 1960s 'pataphysics was used as a conceptual principle within various fine art forms, especially pop art and popular culture. Works within the pataphysical tradition tend to focus on the processes of their creation, and elements of chance or arbitrary choices are frequently key in those processes. Select pieces from the artist Marcel Duchamp[45] and the composer John Cage[46] characterize this. At around this time, Asger Jorn, a pataphysician and member of the Situationist International, referred to 'pataphysics as a new religion.[47] Rube Goldberg and Heath Robinson were artists who contrived machines of a pataphysical bent.
