Kilroy Was Here, Too...

Kilroy was here, and it is a memorable piece of graffiti that became popular during World War II. It was typically seen scrawled on walls, equipment, and other surfaces by American servicemen. The phrase was accompanied by a distinctive doodle: a bald-headed man with a prominent nose peeking over a wall, clutching the edge with his fingers. The origins of Kilroy are debated, but it became associated with GIs in the 1940s. Interestingly, the British version, known as “Mr. Chad” or simply “Chad,” predated Kilroy and may have influenced its creation. The graffiti’s outrageousness lay not only in what it said but also in where it turned up. While it’s unclear if there was a person named Kilroy, the phrase left an indelible mark on wartime culture.

2023, Two Trams Meet Before the 109th St. Bridge.

Pop Pop Dazzled by Every Day Presents a Découpé Visual Narrative, Two Trams Meet Cut Up on YouTube. I’ve taken recent and archived citizen-free news stories and interlaced them with various sounds and visuals to create this YouTube. This process transforms the news into art, crafting a fresh narrative akin to the cut-up technique (or ‘découpé’ in French). The original method involves dissecting and reassembling written text to create a new text and, consequently, a new sound and image experience. The roots of this concept can be traced back to the Dadaists of the 1920s, but it was writer William S. Burroughs who brought it to the forefront in the 1950s and early 1960s. William S. Burroughs saw cut-ups as a powerful tool for literary experimentation, unlocking hidden layers of meaning and offering glimpses into the future. Whether as a form of divination or a creative technique, cut-ups intrigue writers and artists alike. AI, Edited.
