TIN FOIL Surrealism

Excellent vintage footage of SALVADOR DALÍ doing some crazy tin foil alchemy to honour of his incarnation as the divine SUN GOD HERMES. Accompanied by avant garde jazz flute and sax music.

VIEWING TIME: Under 2 minutes.

I totally dig his Pentagonal Helmet. (Note to self: Make one. Wear everywhere.)

IN FACT there are actual studies on the effectiveness of the Tin Foil Hat, and its not what you think!

    Thank you for this! The perfect start to my weekend. Sipping a vodka lemonade, eating salami with cheddar, and forwarding this to my crazy art teacher friend and my Claire Bear, who is busy working the looms at RISD, 24/7. Love, Jules
