Point of No Return

   

Point of No Return

a diorama of the apocryphal story in which the word “Dada” was selected at random by sticking a paper knife into a French-German dictionary. It is an homage to the disruptive and playful spirit of Dada and an invocation of that spirit for today’s absurd world.

Commissioned for the Documenting Dada/Disseminating Dada exhibition at the University of Iowa Libraries
Created in collaboration with John Engelbrecht
