Dali clock

How difficult would it be to make a Dali clock? Which elements could be done from scratch and what's a reasonable jumping off point with premade prebuilt components?

    How would you do it? I'd start by ignoring that the dials are floating and make them out of flexible material moving them with magnets.

      thinking about it, you could put in a layer of plexi making them appear to float.

    The ones they sell at the Dali museum and elsewhere use a standard AA powered clock movement and small hands that allow them to move freely inside the warped space and are out of scale enough to give an illusion of being distorted when they really aren't .

      Was thinking about visiting the museum. Thought they sold their crap online, https://thedali.org/visit/store-cafe/the-museum-store/ but they don't.

        Yeah I looked that up too; kinda odd but thay are clearly well funded so I guess it's just there for visitors. I got one there, if you get a chance it's fucking amazing both to see his stuff up close and for the building and grounds.

          Can't remember if I've been to it since the new building. I grew up on the Southside, but moved away 18 years ago, only come back every year or 2. It's changed a shit ton, some good and some bad. They used to sell stuff online.

          Why the fuck is there a Dali museum in St Pete?

            High traffic volume tourist attraction needs a site that can handle high traffic volume, and tourists.

            "Until 1971, the Morses displayed their collection in their Cleveland, Ohio, home. When they loaned over 200 pieces to a Dalí retrospective in 1965, they realized that 25 years of curation had produced a unique collection that needed a permanent home.

            In March 1971, with Salvador Dalí presiding over the opening, the Morses opened a museum adjacent to their office building in Beachwood, Ohio. By the end of the decade, with an overwhelming number of visitors, the Morses decided to again move their collection.

            After a drawn-out search which drew national attention, a marine warehouse in downtown St. Petersburg, Florida was rehabilitated and the museum opened on March 7, 1982, where it remained until 2010.

            In mid-2008, a new location for the Dali museum was announced... Located on the downtown waterfront next to the Mahaffey Theater, on the former site of the Bayfront Center, (an arena which had been demolished in 2004), the new, larger, and more storm-secure museum was opened on January 11, 2011."

              Strange. But it sort of makes sense when you have a rainy day and can’t make it to the beach. I think I almost went to that museum a couple years ago when the red tide was really bad and we wanted something to do during the day. Put it some place where you already have tourists looking for something to do and no competition from other museums like NYC or Chicago.

                It's definitely worth the trip, the scope of what he did is amazing, and you cant help but get an appreciation for his immense technical prowess in any number of media and perfectionism that is in stark contrast to the crazy surrealist nature of his work and his public persona...his garden gnomeelry work alone is stunning and the size of some of the canvases and the effect you get seeing them irl has to be experienced.
                Hard enough to just physically paint a 10'x14' canvas but to do it and make optical illusions and shifting perspectives work at various distances takes a true master, regardless of what you think about the subjects or his motivations. There's also some early non- surrealist paintings he did as a student that are small and so perfectly done as far as brushwork they look like a high end auto body shop did them, absolutely flawless technique.

                FWIW there's also a pretty cool Dale Chihuly glass museum there, pic related.

                Really? Time to DIY exhume him. Is he in Spain? I remember on the tour, they made a point to say it was the definitive museum, per his widow.

                The main one is a theater in his home town that Dali and the mayor rebuilt as his museum, I guess he was still alive when they started. He’s buried under the stage.

      Sadly, Dali didn't have the internet and didn't have the opportunity to create a sweeping legacy of Beavis and Butthead, -tier sentence fragments such as yours, and had to settle for being one of the most iconic artists of the 20th century whose work in a host of disciplines is renowned for its masterful technique and wildly creative petsonal perspective.

        damn, you seem pretty upset
        you should calm down a bit... maybe go for a walk, or have a beer or something.
        if not, maybe wear some spandex and put on a cape because you seem super mad
