surrealism presentation

The graphic design history class was structured like a chronological time line of design starting from the invention of writing all the way to the digital age. Each student was assigned an era of the time line and required to present to the class and essentially teach the students what is necessary to know about that specific topic. My assigned topic was Surrealism, the avant garde form of art that focused on the psychological aspect of how humans think and make and the relationship between the two. Included in the presentation was an exersize on the "Exquisite Corpse" one authentically used in making surrealist poetry and images.
