Daily Prompt: Surreal

Surreal

Hi Everyone!
Now this word I have heard a lot of lately. It seems like every program I watch has surreal in it.
So what’s so terrific about this word?
Have you ever had a surreal experience?
Or a surreal dream?
Not sure let’s scoop it out.


Surreal – characterized by fantastic imagery and incongruous juxtapositions; “a great concourse of phantasmagoria shadows”–J.C.Powys; “the incongruous imagery in surreal art and literature”
Phantasmagoria – A constantly changing scene composed of numerous elements.
Juxtapositions – to place close together or side by side

I find “surreal” being used in art, designer, makeup artist, best of all “special effects makeup artist”. Have you ever watched on Syfy.com a program Face Off? If you haven’t give it a try. Their designs are unbelievable. Season 12, episode 5 String Theory.

My favorite “surreal” artist is M. C. Escher MC Escher waterfall

Have a great day! Hope M C Escher classroom
