So Gael likes to stop by at the Gap Kid and we see a cool t shirt for him. Pink Floyd.  We come home and get on the You Tube because he needs a little lesson about who the Pink Floyd is. It comes all back for the 3 hour long lesson starting with “Wish you were here”, “Another brick in the wall”, “Mother” and it goes on and we are just moving on to the animations. Yes it could be not so easy for a 6 year old but it’s way way Way better than empty Jona’s brothers.

Now myself  see some animations for the first time and  I’m totally getting into them. How amazing is the animation of “ Good bye Blue sky”!   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SfJYpVwb7aE 

Gael slips away from the Pink Floyd and plays with wooden blocks stacking them up to some sort of home or garage he says but we keep going on browsing through more of Pink Floyd’s animations. ” The Trial”, ” Empty spaces”, ” Waiting for the worms” and there are so many more.  

I see huge influence of Surrealism on Pink Floyd’s animation work. Last year around this time, MoMa had done a very interesting exhibition on Salvador Dali.  MoMa had brought more than 130 paintings, drawings and films by Salvador Dali. Collaborations between Dali’ and legendary filmmakers were displayed alongside his paintings and other works. Alfred Hitchcock and Walt Disney were the few of the many. I see obvious synergy between Pink Floyd’s animations and music videos and  works of Dali’ or other Surrealists like Giorgio de Chirico or Marc Earnest.  Their works feature the element of surprise, unexpected juxtapositions and also expose psychological truth by stripping ordinary objects of their normal significance. I find it fascinating and somehow challenging in a bit of mental way making me feel like I just had gone through some sort of dream.

Watch the only short animation collaboration of Dali and Disney, “Destino”
