“Already today, we can program simple mathematical objects and project them immediately in holographic form in space. The next step will be to create cybernetically prepared spectacles through which we can program ideas we are thinking in our brain. Initially, this will allow programming on the basis of simple geometric images. However, we will soon be able to project through these spectacles on a screen whatever we can imagine. We will see what we are thinking. Bravo!” -Salvador Dali

Dali was fascinated by the technological advances of the 1970s including CAT (Computerized Axial Tomography) and MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) brain scans. Dalí modifies his spectacles to reflect humankind’s ability to comprehend brain activity due to those recent medical advances within the piece “Spectacles with Holograms and Computers for Seeing Imagined Objects.”

Salvador Dalí was born on May 11, 1904, in Figueres, Spain. From an early age Dalí was encouraged to practice his art, and he would eventually go on to study at an academy in Madrid. In the 1920s, he went to Paris and began interacting with artists such as Picasso, Magritte and Miró, which led to Dalí's first Surrealist phase. He is perhaps best known for his 1931 painting The Persistence of Memory, showing melting clocks in a landscape setting. Dalí died in Figueres in 1989.
