Must see documentary: The Dali dimension . How much knowledge was behind his work. Enjoyed so much. For all who belive that art &science & spirituality are closely connected and inspired by each other. And this picture reminds me a bit of J. Carrey’s erased memories in movie Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind I watched yesterday.
“THE DALI DIMENSION reveals a completely unknown aspect of one of the most important figures of the 20th Century, and gives new insight to interpret some of Dalí’s masterpieces. …Dalí read scientific literature compulsively, from psychoanalysis to quantum mechanics, and mathematics to genetics. Moreover, he strove all his life to meet relevant scientists: Sigmund Freud, James D. Watson (co-discoverer of the structure of DNA, Nobel prize 1962), Ilya Prigogine (Nobel prize chemistry 1977), Severo Ochoa (Nobel prize physiology 1959).
Jeff Buckley’s music & Dali:
“There are those who miss being in-depth with the world,” explains Nikolaj Lie Kaas in an interview with Politiken on April 29th 2001, “but for me superficiality means a lot – that’s where I get my drive.” This is an interesting comment from an actor, whose acting always strikes a deeply personal cord. While other actors strive to close in on life, Kaas – who experienced tragic loss at an early age – seems eager to escape the eye of the storm. It is a disturbing quality that etches his characters in the audience’s mind.”
