General Description

"This garden would float triumphantly in space. It would be similar to a balloon but not spherical. More flat, like an inflatable filet of sole. It would be covered with a biological surface, so the garden would receive, and be nourished by the sun's rays, the same way as the plants and flowers within it. The garden would be capable of various tensions so that it could be navigated in space, steered remotely by radiation or radio waves." Salvador Dalí. Dalí's miniature red consumers frolic happily in a weightless and transportable playground. Crutches, one of Dalí's recurrent objects, support the lines of communication in this garden.
