Alles over slapen, dromen, het nachtelijk brein en creatief denken.

The Dali museum in St. Petersburg, Florida contains a curated collection of the great surrealist artist, Salvador Dali.

As part of that collection, they have recently released a 360 degree video on Youtube which will allow you to enter and experience one of Dali’s paintings. Travel inside and beyond Dali’s 1935 painting Archaeological Reminiscence of Millet’s “Angelus” to explore the world of the Surrealist master like never before.

Though Dali himself died in 1989, long before such technology was available, he was no stranger to attempting to capture dreams artistically. He designed a dream sequence used in the Alfred Hitchcock film “Spellbound” (1945).

    Do you know that Dali had a technique of using dreams as an inspiration? Here is something I wrote about it:

    Salvador Dali had zijn eigen techniek om dromen te gebruiken als inspiratie, hij volgde zelfs een speciaal dieet op bepaalde dagen van de maand. Op die dag(en) concentreerde hij zich enkel op het krijgen van dromen ter inspiratie van zijn schilderijen.
