Joseph Cornell was also from the Dadaist movement. His most famous work is “Shadow Boxes” which were filled with glass fronted boxes with Victorian bric-a-brac inside. He also created Medici Slot-Machines, like the one below, which was designed to be handled and interacted with. I think it’s really interesting to see that as far back as the start of the twentieth century, artists were looking at ways to involve their audiences.
