Persistence of Memory


2d: Salvador Dali | 3d: Voodoo Shilton

I've long been a fan of surrealist artists (M. C. Escher and Salvador Dali in particular) and thought a SL interpretation of Dali's classic was long overdue. For me the melting watches are a metaphor for the relativity of time and space, a relatively new concept at the time of Dali's work. The artwork as a dream allegory combines new understandings of the universe with the mystical personal experience of the individual. It was a landmark mind broadening artwork for its time that asks us to reconsider assumptions about reality and existence.
