Subject Matter:

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 clock, a familiar Dalí motif, does not only represent time and its slipage in the Surrealist space here. It also represents the new technologies of travel, as the clock creates a kind of roadway for space-time travel. 

Physical Description:

Winding through the center of this print, a melting clock oozes from the top right to the bottom center in red, yellow and blue. To the left of the base of the clock is a bright orange and red bolder. In the background, there is a large landscape with mountains and a cloudy sky. There are three figures in the scene. At the bottom right, a figure is seated with a staff and behind it is a large shape in yellow, red and blue. At the center, there is a sketch of a mounted figure on a rearing horse; and at the upper right, there is a figure with a strong shadow. The print is signed (l.r.) and numbered (l.l.) in pencil.
