    Pop artists used imagery and objects produced by mass consumerism to via commercial methods like silkscreening, or produced multiples of an original artist's works to give their pieces a biting sense of irony and humor. Warhol and Lichtenstein, in particular, connected their works with elements from media (TV, movies, advertisements, cartoons) to challenge traditional boundaries.

    Likewise, the Neo-Dadaists also used imagery and objects produced by mass consumerism to convey their themes. These images also resonated with irony and were mainly integrated with found objects as well as social critiques. A prime example is Jim Dine's Pearls (1961) or Bedspring (1960) as they mundane objects were transformed into this genre of art.
