In the next few minutes, we will give you a surreal experience in sound.
OCEAN WAVES LAPPING
Ahhh. the beach. Waves gently lapping. The sun hangs high in the sky...
In surrealism, objects are both very realistic, and very fantastic , meaning unreal and imaginary. For instance, these ocean waves. They look like... I'll just reach down...
Mmmm. red wine. So...a red wine ocean. That's surreal.
TICKING clock FADES IN
And wait a second . The sun. It's really the round face of clock . And it's ticking.
TICKING IS LOUDER
DOORBELL AND KNOCK ON DOOR AT LEFT
There's a door over there on the beach.
Another characteristic of surrealism is the absurd juxtaposition of objects, which means putting things next to each other that don't normally go together.
Like a door on a beach.
DOORBELL AND KNOCK ON DOOR AGAIN.
Excuse me. I guess I better open it.
DOOR SLAMS SHUT
Whoa! in a surreal world, when there's a knock on the door, something unexpected and impossible is probably on the other side.
BABY LAUGHING AT RIGHT
Ahh. There's a baby playing in the sand.
But in surrealism realistic objects transform into things that cannot exist in reality. For example, the wonderful laugh of this baby. It seems to be transforming even as I speak.
BABY SLOWLY MORPHS INTO GROWL
Wheew. Scary baby. And surreal. Surrealism presents images of terrible beauty, images that both attract us and shock us.
