Jude is playing games with DaDa at 100

Jude's tribute to DaDa arrived in the same mail bag that Aristide 3108's did.  Fittingly, Jude has used gold and included a stamp of Emmy Henning's, Hugo Ball's wife.  Jude captures the spirit of fun they must have had performing, making art and poetry in unsettled times. 

I found Jude's game confounding… I pulled on the rubber bands, trying to get the lines and words to spin, but immediately tore the holes.  I put tape over them and tried again.  I guess I'm just not enough of a kid at heart! Or I missed the point.

I like the rhythm  of DaDa or Dada. DaDa music for the opus.


  1. Hi Rebecca, the disk is a thaumatrope -- you twirl the rubber bands and images come together in your eye. Cheers!

    Thanks for solving the puzzle--I will make one to try out.
