The image posted below is of Salvador Dali’s piece, The Persistence of Memory. My primary reaction to this piece when I first saw it was absolute astonishment. From the use of shading to show the darker regions of the landscape, to the use of wavy lines to give the clocks a dream-like appearance. Another great use of lines is in the upper left corner of the image, where there is almost a glass like surface resting above the ground. If you look closely you can see that a line is used to separate the two different values of the blueish-gray color. This piece relates to our current assignment because much like the clocks hanging over the various objects, we must find a way to have our stories in our books flow.
