Dada da

I used to teach about the Dada, Metaphysical School and Surrealism movements of the beginning of the 20th Century. These art movements were the art of the irrational and were profoundly influenced by the huge research of the Austrian Psychiatrist Sigmund Freud. He discovered that a great deal of human behaviour is not determined by the rational, conscious and intellectual parts of our minds but by the irrational, the unconscious and the imaginative parts. This diary page was made at the time I was teaching this wonderful art history and is an irrational poem with automatic drawings.
