---Walter Benjamin recognized the importance of Dada when he wrote in 'The Work of Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction' that when authenticity ceases to be an important part of making art, "the total function of art is reversed. Instead of being based on ritual it begins to be based on another practice, politics." --- Collage by Raoul Hausmann Image:http://www.johnvalentino.com/Teaching/Art190/Projects/190Proj2/Dada.html
The Voyeurs Hull - unfolded facade | Thomas Hudson | Sheffield - The model is the culmination of a series of drawings used to map out the building's facade; the project occupies a tight courtyard, and the representation of the form needed to reflect its restricted context. By unfolding it like a net, the levels, depth, structure, materiality and light quality could be explored, whilst also forming the basis for an accurate construction drawing for the complex shape.
