Sleeping with the Fishes








Synopsis: A Surrealist collage in honor of Luis Buñuel, André Breton, and bisexual Dadaist poet Elsa von Freytag-Loringhoven. “Give me two hours a day of activity, and I’ll take the other 22 in dreams.”―Luis Buñuel “Words have finished flirting. Now they are making love. The same is true of images.”―André Breton. Sleeping with the Fishes is an eco-feminist Dada poem from found footage.
