"Reasoning is the cognitive process of looking for reasons, beliefs, conclusions, actions or feelings."
Some things are worth keeping.

This site has become a collection of the more interesting ideas; poetry; and writing. It has also been an opportunity to learn some…

Hopefully, while you are here, you'll find something that entertains and perhaps even something that's thought provoking.

So who was Sophie Taeuber-Arp?
Born in Davos, Switzerland in 1889 as Sophie Henriette Gertrude Taeuber, Taeuber-Arp is now recognised as one of the key figures in the Dada artistic movement, though in her lifetime she fought for her less figurative style of art to be recognised as fine art.
Taeuber-Arp studied drawing and attended the School for Applied and Free Art in Munich before leaving for Zurich in 1915, where she met and later married French sculptor, painter and collagist Hans Arp in 1922.
The pair famously created vast, abstract multimedia works under the umbrella Duo Collages.
As well as a skilled artist, Taeuber-Arp was also a lauded dancer, and performed at the Cabaret Voltaire nightclub which was a firm favourite with the Dada crowd.
She died in Zurich in 1943 of accidental carbon monoxide poisoning (a faulty stove), and remains the only woman to date to feature on Swiss banknotes.
The Dadaist movement was an art movement of the European avant-garde in the early 20th century
