You took two original works and threw them together, I grant you
that's transformative, modern, even... as in Dadaist or something.
Because you simply don't have the capacity to make the leaps of creative
thought that I have.
Your reciting poetry on top of the Cyndi Lauper song was, in ne
perspective, like when the master of Dada Marcel Duchamp drew a moustache
and beard on the Mona Lisa.
"the work is one of what Duchamp referred to as readymades, or more
specifically a rectified ready-made. The readymade involves taking
mundane, often utilitarian objects not generally considered to be art and
transforming them, by adding to them, changing them [...] In L.H.O.O.Q.
the objet trouvé ("found object") is a cheap postcard reproduction of
Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa onto which Duchamp drew a moustache and
beard in pencil and appended the title..."
Yes, that is what Duchamp did (the Wikipedia article is correct).
relates to the moustache on the Mona Lisa icon.
Like it or not, that is what happened.
