Future Russia.

The future is here! — constructions of text and image created by Russian Futurist Aleksei Kruchenykh along with Vasilii Kamenskii, Kirill Zdanevich and his wife Olga Rozanova. Kruchenykh was a poet and critic best known for his artist books from 1912 and 1916. Working together with Velimir Khlebnikov, created a idea of zaum or “nonsense language” in which they wrote poetry. The disjointed, senseless, rapid poems inspired dynamic collages that became known as “transrational paintings.”
