Genius/Madness

Take a look at this remarkable "sculpture" by Salvadore Dali:

It's amazing that he was able to piece that together in his mind, how he understood how each of the contours of the human body could be brought together to create the image.

That work of art reminded me of a web page I once downloaded.

"Creative Genius or Psychotic? A Look at the Strong Positive Correlation Between Creativity and Psychoses"

Yeah, but why is he always in the picures? Dare I say it's marketing?

Wow... that is a wild "sculpture... and I am interested in reading the creativity/psychosis site.. (but my eyes are killing me...)

I heard once that psychotic people, when looking at positive/negative space, will most often see the negative space first.

Because he only painted himself and his wife as subjects. He was the greatest painter who ever lived. Just ask him.
