A nice overview of the philosophical methods and notions employed by Dali for aesthetic inspiration.
Created in the early 1930’s by Dali himself, the “Paranoid-Critical” method is a Surrealist method used to help an artist tap into their subconscious through systematic irrational thought and a self-induced paranoid state. By inducing this paranoid state one can forego one’s previous notions, concepts, and understanding of the world and reality in order to view the world in new, different and more unique ways.
Salvador Dali became enthralled with Quantum mysticism probably due to the philosophical concepts dealing with consciousness. Some of the philosophical claims of Quantum Mysticism include beliefs such as “There is no observer separate from reality and no separate reality from the observer.”
