Last night I wrote a post about Isaak Asimov’s depiction of hyper-space, and today I found this image, which is probably a perfect artistic illustration of it (at least, the way I see it).
“Through hyper-space, that unimaginable region that was neither space nor time, matter nor energy, something nor nothing, one could traverse the length of the Galaxy in the interval between two neighboring instants of time“. (A. Asimov, ‘Foundation’)
If I could name the painting, I’d call it: “Asimov’s Hyper-Space.” What do you think?
Reblogged this on Amanda Slaybaugh and commented:
We have the Dali museum here in Tampa Bay (St. Petersburg to be exact)…great stuff…Dali was big into atoms/science of that era…check out his other art on that.
Thanks for checking out. I had a huge Dali phase. Now I seem to have Asimov phase. 🙂
By the way, i just checked, the Foundation as a novel was published in 1951. About same period when Dali painted this painting. Wow. I didn’t connect it at first 🙂 ice seen Dali in Dc Smithsonian, in Amsterdam, and probably some other place I can’t remember. Love his art.
