Had a dream last night that began with a scene from Dali / Buñuel's Un Chien Andalou, the famous razor-slicing-eyeball moon-cloud sequence, and ended with an infestation of ants traipsing across my bed and swarming all over me. Nice. Luckily I can't remember much about what happened in between those two images, but both were fairly vivid and I woke up feeling sick with my skin crawling.
I used to have a lot of Dali prints on my wall as an undergradute but I never dreamt about them. In my first year I had The Persistence of Memory hanging above my bed, and because I only mounted it on a flimsy piece of card suspended from the picture rail with a couple of pieces of string, it started to bulge out of the wall like a demonic fisheye and looked like it was descending down upon me.
This is the third night this week I've dreamt about ants, and I'm starting to wonder why.
