Text by the artist:
A visualization of André Breton's "Dream sentence":
"A man is cut in half by the window": "... one night before falling asleep, I became aware of a most bizarre sentence ... It seemed to me a highly insistent sentence - a sentence, I might say, which knocked at the window ... the sentence truly astounded me. Unfortunately I still cannot remember the exact words to this day, but it is something like "A man is cut in half by the window ..."
("Le Manifeste du Surréalisme", 1924).
