London Dada social commentary work to round off the Queen’s diamond jubilee year of 2012.
Concrete work inspired by the quote from the music legend & eminently sane Frank Zappa;

” Until you change yourselves from subjects to citizens, you’re always going to be eating shit”

” Monarch and subject”
– every piece of oppressive govt. legislation gets guaranteed royal assent ( the bejewelled nod ).

” Art, for us, is not an end in itself, but an opportunity to express true perception and criticism of the times in which we live” – Hugo Ball, founder of Dada, 1916

Slaughterhouse Christmas

Re-post from last year. Ideal Christmas day  inbox e-card for those heavily reliant on making merry with meat at yuletide. The grim meathook reality at the moment for millions of battery birds and factory-farmed animals… is that you must die to be eaten in celebration of the birth of someone who advocated ” Thou shalt not kill”
London Dada says Go Nut Roast this Christmas – you know it makes at least bowel cancer-avoidance  sense.

In a callous and uncivilized society the weak & the innocent have few rights.
