I am normally terrified when I am asked to make collages. I just don’t get them and they always turned out terrible.
But I have been going to these workshops about early 20th century artistic movements and this Sunday was the first session about Dadaism. And the exercise was to make a collage like the dadaists would: accumulate a lot of things and it should have absolutely no meaning.
And I guess the fact that we did not have to make anything pretty liberated me. I was just playing with colour and letters and it actually worked out in the end.
Plus I found it a very relaxing process, for the first time in my life.
