Three Bits of Red

Filed under: Rex — Rex @ 09:16

Dali Museum, St Petersburg, FL



  1. The two dots of light and the base of the ‘please’ stand form a triangle that could be a hi-tech magnetic resonance machine that traps people standing in it! The three red dots then break the spell with humour. A fun observation that works well.

  2. What fun this is! The bits of red and the white circles on the gray grid are nice elements, but those foreshortened figures — I just can’t stop looking at them. What an effect. I think Dali would approve.

  3. My first thoughts on this were “you little rebel you”, but were you technically not in the actually gallery yet and hence the instructions below the third bit of red may not apply.

    My eye was also caught by a triangle, but at first the right hand corner was formed by the base of the sign which starts with the word “please”.

    Christine has inadvertently opened up the possibility in my imagination that if those two gentlemen had been looking up, then they would have looked like cartoon characters.

    Good observation and execution Rex.

    • You are correct the public areas invited photography, it was forbidden where the Dali pictures were hung. The building follows the theme in some Dali images where he became fascinated with the golden ratio, DNA, and nuclear energy. This staircase is built within a spiral said to be based on Fibonacci.

      On reading your comment I realised I missed a trick and should have made a noise to get them tho look up! :-)
