@gravois - I visited Florida one year and saw Dali artwork in the celebrated Dalu museum down in St. Petersburg, Florida.
The surrealist paintings were breathtaking. One in particular that caught my attention was his painting of the crucifix hung in space, affixed to three dimensional cubes. That piece is called Corpus Hypercubicus, which is basically a hypercube.
I understood from the museum curator that Dali was a fan of geometry and that the hypercube fascinated him. It’s a concept used in modern science fiction as well, as it suggests the ability to cross space and time in a moment, as if through a warp in space.
Dali was certainly out there, to be sure, but I loved his paintings, and the free rein of his imagination.
