“I made a model of Kiki in 2008 to use for another project based on all of the various photos of Man Ray.   I turned her head around, breaking her neck, to turn her into an “impossible object,” a kind of Sphinx.   I then imagined her as a Times Square billboard, and covered her with flashing billboards, but made from the original Dada magazine covers.  The purpose of the work is to turn  Kiki into a goddess, the “Kiki.obj.”


Claudia Hart has been active as an artist, curator and critic since 1988. She works with digital trompe l’oeil as a medium, directing theater and making media objects of all kinds. These include multi-channel 3D animation installations, sculptures using industrial production techniques such as Rapid Prototyping, CNC routing, and virtual and mixed reality environments, and  augmented-reality custom apps. Hart’s works deal with issues of representation, and the role of the computer in shifting contemporary values about identity and what might be called the natural. Her project is to de-masculinze the culture of corporate technology by inserting the irrational and the personal into the slick, overly-determined Cartesian world of digital design. She is widely exhibited and collected by galleries and museums including the Museum of Modern Art and the Metropolitan Museum, the New Museum, Eyebeam Center for Art + Technology, where she was an honorary fellow in 2013-14.  She works with Transfer gallery in New York.  She is married to the Austrian media artist Kurt Hentschlager, and lives in Chicago where she is a tenured professor at the School of the Art Institute.

“An anagram, beside being one of the oldest type of remix, it’s a combination game that rearranges the elements of the world in unpredictable ways” Diana Kudryavtseva

“What is it that is missing in all of us? Is it “imagination”, “dialectical reasoning” or something else? In celebrating Dada’s spirit of provocation, I name this work after a project that I’ve been mulling over for some time. It has to do with the potential offered by 3D animation in creating work with the combined powers of fact and speculative fiction. I am interested in challenging, instigating, agitating, and ultimately animating, THOUGHT through ACTION. This work is the precursor to the upcoming series under this same title” Alysse Stepanian

“Dada alone does not smell: it is nothing, nothing, nothing.

It is like your hopes: nothing

like your paradise: nothing

like your idols: nothing

like your heroes: nothing

like your artists: nothing

like your religions: nothing.”


From ‘Manifeste cannibale dada’ by Francis Picabia, read at the Dada soirée at the Théâtre de la Maison de l’Oeuvre, Paris, 27 March 1920.
