A Poetry of Fragments: dada methodology [RCA_MA ARCHITECTURE_2020_ADS6]

Through employing Dadaist poetic methods, archival fragments are re-assembled into new chance combinations, to form a collection of ambiguous instructions. Inspiration is taken from Tristan Tzara, whose poetry was composed by reassembling newspaper cut outs from a jumbled up bag of words and phrases. In this methodology we must place trust in the everyday beauty of the unexpected outcome. These are then translated through the individual’s imagination, to form the reinterpreted narrative of The Book of Poetic Acts.
