Dalinian Atomic Theory

Dalinian Atomic Theory is an investigation into the connections between a selection of Salvador Dali's works and the contemporary emerging science he was exposed to. After recognizing scientific motifs and structures in Dali's work, I searched the archives of Scientific American magazine and ground-breaking discoveries published in Nature, ultimately connecting them to Dali's fascination with chemistry, biology, physics, nature, and god. Dalinian Atomic Theory brings out a seldom-discussed side of the artist, the brilliant Nuclear Mystic.
