The Meaning of "Aidadaism"
"Life is but a dream, within a dream."
- William Shakespeare
"Aidadaism" is the combination of my name, "Ai" with the concept of "Dadaism (A European artistic and literary movement (1916- 1923) that flouted conventional aesthetic and cultural values by producing works marked by nonsense, travesty, and incongruity. - Quoted from Source )
I have always been inspired by Surrealist Artists such as Salvador Dali and M.C Escher. When I created "Aidadaism", it was at first a logbook of sorts of different stages of my life, in the way of art works. Now having thrown away many of my artworks, all that I have left is Aidadaism, and in a way, Aidadaism is in itself, the ultimate artwork that I am creating.
Aidadaism is a collection of thoughts, ideas, comics, photography, blogs, vlogs and many other creative outlets that are dedicated to journaling my thoughts and feelings. For if life is but a dream, than the journal of my life is a dream journal, and it is called "Aidadaism".
