In Search of Dreaming: Surrealism and Photograph
It seems paradoxical to conceive of the surrealist movement as having had a manifesto, and yet it did. (Actually, it had more than one!  Manifestos were all the rage back then.)  The first manifesto was written by the French writer André Breton in 1924. Of course, a good deal of humor must have gone into defining what was essentially indefinable. Even though we can't quite put words to what we expect from surrealism, we know the things we have come to find there: surprise, non sequitur, non-rational significance in images. The marriage of the world of dream to the world as we daily experience it creates surrealism.  It is the whimsical juxtaposition of conscious and unconscious spaces.
While browsing the surreal category of photography on deviantART, it didn't surprise me to learn that this category is widely misunderstood. Surrealism often seems to be interpreted to mean simply "creepy", but that's not what it is.  It is also evident that m

Literature
FOR GREEN IMPLIES ALL THINGS
FOR GREEN IMPLIES ALL THINGS
FIRST

We start with a sky.
We choose
The color.
Perhaps a tumultuous gray
Would set things into motion.
THEN
The sky turns green,
For green implies all things,
The silent moment full with storm,
The wind's claim upon everything,
And rain.
IT DOESN'T TAKE LONG
Before we construct the frame,
Set in the glass, and then,
Stand back
In our huddled warmth
Of shelter.
FROM BEHIND THE GLASS
It is difficult to see
The fabric of our newly made canvas.
The colors transmute and each surface blends
Till we can no longer tell
The thing from its likeness.
THE MAKER
Of all creation exists
In the mere shadow of a word,
And yet, the child knows
That night is always there,
That we just turn our heads away
For a while.
And as if spent in sleep,
Our days are brief,
As stars collapse
And fade into heavy blackness.
