In rewatching episodes of Hannibal, I am once again struck by how this image is, for me, the most unsettling one from the show. Because I’ve HAD that nightmare; I suspect many chronic insomniacs have had a similar one.
January 14: Just a few weeks ago my beloved 10 euro watch from Paris from the summer of 2013 broke. So, it was time for change. (ha…ha…time…for change…ok…) I did what any art history nerd would do. I logged onto the Dali Museum website and ordered a melting clock watch. Oh and then I went to the MoMA and snapped this photo.
One was a cartoonist, animator and filmmaker, responsible for choreographing the imaginations of countless growing children with his beloved characters; the other was an eccentric Surrealist, responsible for some of the most haunting and hallucinatory images ever to be imprinted onto the collective subconscious. One had a soft spot for anthropomorphized mice and stuttering ducks; the other for melting clocks and voracious ants.
One said, “If you can dream it, you can do it,” and the other: “I don’t do drugs. I am drugs."Yup, we’re talking Walt Disney and Salvador Dalí, two wildly creative visionaries with entirely different visions – one that likely appealed to your earliest fantastical adventures of the mind, and the other to your college drug experimentation phase. An exhibition entitled ”Disney and Dalí: Architects of the Imagination,“ will delve into the relationship between Walt and Salvador, two artists who challenged the rigid boundaries once separating dreams from waking life.
