Infinity is a long time, especially towards the end. Quote by DAC

Art can be viewed much like a dream: when we go to sleep, we do not plan what we will dream. Yet, when we awaken from the dream, sometimes we attempt to psychoanalyze the dream’s meanings and how they relate to our lives. In some cases, analyzing our dreams for meaning can help us better understand ourselves. Perhaps the same metaphor can be used for Surrealist art. Surrealist artists who created their paintings may not have consciously planned the images they would use; yet, as an audience, we attempt to evoke meaning from the images in order to make sense of what the artist’s intention was. Doing this, we make sense of human nature and the relativity of the world around us.

Excerpt from: Surrealism Symbols of Relativity by Andrea Martin

I’ve always love the surrealists paintings about relativity and time. Below is a collection of Surrealists work about this theme.
