2017 Dada - The Art Movement (like a bowel movement, in my opinion.)

I tried to come up with the most stupid image I could imagine.

This is it.

I think there's a reason Dadasim didn't last very long and turned into Surrealism.

I went to my Props Drawer, and picked out some random stuff. Then, I put it on a piece of paper that was also in the drawer. Went to the china cabinet and got the cup and saucer that I got from my grandmother.

Set it all down. Shot it. And it probably didn't take ten minutes to do it all.


And... just like THAT, I've turned this from Dadaism into Surrealism, because there's some "message" in the image. Rolleyes.

Rolleyes, indeed.

If this does well, I'll eat my hat.

Stupid Dadaism.

You crack me up. I stop by here every now and then to see what's on the front page, read the comments on entries, that sort of thing. You and Wendy often have nice little novellas. I enjoy that. But here's the thing - you do know you don't have to enter every challenge, right? If you hate the subject matter, and you feel compelled to enter anyway, do something you like at least! With the exception of the leagues, where I'd enter what my teammates wanted, I enter what I like. Granted, usually no one else likes it, but at least I do! :). PS, this is hard to do on a phone. It's a holiday for the government but not the support contractors, and DPC is not available on work computers.
