The Absurd is fun and wildly enjoyable. In the vain of the founders of the Dadaist movement, the disjointed mindsets and humor is at it’s core of this work. It is the joy of the unexpected and the discomfort of having pleasure with something that has no logic behind it.
This work is the thought “should this be done” and with the half laugh at the idea of self encouragement that pushes it forward.
