Global index of the decay of the aura of language, the Dadameter aims at measuring our distance to Dada. It was inspired by the work of the french writer Raymond Roussel.
The project is a satire about the recent transmutation of language into a global market ruled by Google et al. and uses the most up-to-date technologies of control to draw cartographies of language at large scale.
It was co-produced by the Rencontres Paris-Berlin-Madrid 2008 for contemporary art and new cinema. Concept: Christophe Bruno – programming: Valeriu Lacatusu
