Piotr Kamler – Une Mission Ephemere 1993

25 Jul

“Kamler’s animated cinema suggests a singular variety of science fiction. Completely unalike to more conventionally linear and text-based narratives, Kamler’s films instead explore a series of dynamic visual motifs. Typically, the conclusion of these films is less suggestive of resolution, than it is of recurring episode.”

Ad writes:Here’s a cool full length movie created by some great classic surrealists (including Ernst and Duchamp). It’s called Dreams that Money Can Buy. I’ve been watching it with my cat, who also seems to be enjoying it.

The art movement of surrealism was a great influence on the psychedelia of the 60’s. The hallucinatory nature of the ideas that the surrealists fished from their unconscious, was embraced by the psychedelic movement and adapted for their creations. Well-known psych-rock songs of the era, such as “White Rabbit” and “I am the Walrus“, were heavily influenced by surrealism.

The surrealists became aware of the connection between their approach and the psychedelic experience.聽Salvador Dali himself was quoted 聽saying in an interview (in response to the question, does he take drugs to make his artwork) “I don’t do drugs; I am drugs.”
