” The invention of Scrunch Art TM by Dadaist Michael St.Mark in 2007 opens up a semi-random multi-faceted variety of latent expressions and moods possible to be imputed on the subject that incorporates a strong hint of Cubism that, with applied artistic sensibility, can be derived from just one source image without need of use of limited and defined computer image manipulation software.”

Four months on – we’re surprised it took the Tories so long, but then again perhaps not – they latch on to a good term and twist it to suit their own cynical ends.

Many Call but Few are Chosen – Confessions of a Pebble Rescuer
c. Michael St.Mark 2015
Poem integral to the work
Saved from a fate worse than sand,
from millennia of twice-daily tides relentless and
Reducing, reducing, with friction merciless til
Nought remains save innumerable anonymous particles, part
of a vast future deep dark seabed – asleep forever.
A hearty wee pebble in a trillion
rescued by a dadaist, an imagination in a million
Siting high and dry upon marble mantlepiece, never more
to suffer indignity of age, of endless tidal bore
Preserved, protected, frozen
in time for all eternity
to far and away outlive
this all too mortal entity
Three Fellow Escapees
