I found this delightful piece by Klee, done in 1922! Twitter should totally use it in their advertising!
The Twittering Machine is a combination of watercolor and pen and ink on paper. It shows a mix of biology and the machine with it’s sketched birds on a wire connected to a hand crank. Even though I may find it delightful in hindsight, it was largely seen as a nightmarish depiction of the triumph of mechanics over art. While others have seen it as a triumph of nature over mechanics, specifically a visual representation of sound.
This is what I love about art! There are so many different takeaways.
