This essay examines an interface between technological modernisation and visual culture in early modernism, briefly that of the prosthetic as an imaginary extension of the human body, as in Futurism, and the prosthetic as an image deployed to critique the anti-humanism of the capitalist system, as in Dada. Amongst the ideas referenced are those of the scientific work method of Taylor, Ford's mass production process, Marinetti's technological romanticism and the leftist critique of Dada.
