Hitech Hypnagogia – A Mind’s Eye View on Art & Design

“Surrealism continues to have not only a vibrant afterlife but an enduring contemporary existence” —Elliot H. King, Art Historian and Salvador Dali Scholar


 “Inspiring people to re-imagine the conventional to the unconventional is inspiring within itself.”
Miles Hartwell, Co-Founder at Splinterworks

We see the reemerging surrealist style as an opportunity to be released from our boxes of consciousness. How freeing it is to delve into the subconscious where we can guiltlessly frolic, dream, be unapologetically creative, and unhindered by practicality and utility. Whether it’s a table, or a pool slide sculpture, what all of our lifestyle accents have in common is their playfulness.
Toying with reality is our signature style.


“Voyage to Higher Planes of Consciousness”
The meditational pod allows you to journey beyond space and time, creating a pathway to enhanced well–being and sensory mindfulness. There’s a correlation between its Daliesque womb shape design powered by sound, lighting, and aromatherapy that coheres to cognitive patterns, providing a sacred space to melt away your worries and spiritually connect with your inner-self. In light of the oppression that has worn on us today, OpenSeed is an emotional incubator that frees the mind and nourishes the soul, making this innovative product of significant relevance today.  – A real synesthetic encounter.

The incendiary gallerist Marcel Katz gives us his Dadaistic introspective on today’s climate’s thriving countercultural movement.

The connection of space and time is relative. Possible futures and distant possibilities are more real and present than one would think. If you can imagine it or feel it, it’s real because it’s living in your mind.

Thankfully I’ve had the pleasure of implementing technology into new ideas and concepts that have been brought to life through the skilled roster of talented V.R. artists, brands, and partners of my network, taking out-of-the-box ideas and turning them into capricious realities.

You were able to view this clearly at my exhibition Dalí, The Real Surreal, where we took massive 3D Salvador Dalí sculptures and made them appear as if you were standing next to colossus structures.

Art is a subjective and personal experience; it can affect you in a specific way based on what you are going through at one moment and effect you entirely differently in another. I feel incredibly connected to this sentiment, as I consciously evolved as an individual during this showcase. It’s been one of the most enlightening moments of my life.

Just as in the famous work, The Persistence of Memory, many realities are coinciding. – At least for me, at this time.

Realities we thought would never come to fruition are here now. We’re all struggling to find balance in a world we never thought would cease to exist, evolving and ever-changing to its adaptations. Finding happiness and acceptance in the unknown isn’t easy, but there’s always a moment of impact that we can’t predict- a potential for different outcomes, bearing in mind that reality is just a fold in time. You never know what’s around the corner unless you allow yourself to wonder what’s over the horizon.
