Using the Dada Manifesto as inspiration, I created a poster that embraces the Ism’s philosophy of chance and nonsense. My goal was to reduce the degree of control I had and embrace imperfections. I used Wordle to create initial word shapes, then layered fashion illustrations from the early 20th Century. To expand further I intended to cut out the word shapes to create a Dada Poem, however a printer error resulted in horizontal banding. I used this mishap as an opportunity and cut the words according to these bands, then pulled them randomly from a bag for their final placement.
