This work was part of Salvador Dalí's 1975 Imaginations and Objects of the Future
portfolio. It contained ten prints with an introductory text by the artist that discussed the project's focus on new technologies' ability to create an alternate universe, especially through holograms.
The title of this print clearly references the larger program of the portfolio and depicts a kind of Surrealist scientific annotation. Here Dalí illustrated the new kind of vision given by technology.Physical Description
In this print, there are line drawings and mirrored text in black at the bottom and to the right. The bottom scene depicts a partial figure in profile with lines coming from the head and a small equestrian figure. In the upper left of the print, there is a colored box with a larger profile of a figure in creams, red, yellow and blue. Inside the head there are a series of lines and shapes as well as drawings of small ants. In front of the figure's face there is a rectangular object with ants and other abstract shapes drawn on it. Below the figure's chin is the artist's monogram and the date. Above the figure's head, to the right, is a geometric pattern in black, white, red and blue. A long tube circles the base of the figure's head and extends down to the lower right on the inserted image. The print is signed (l.r.) and numbered (l.l.) in pencil.Primary Object ClassificationPrintCollection AreaModern and ContemporaryRights
