Salvador Dalí
Cybernetic Lobster Telephone

1975

About

The lobster is prominently featured in some of Dali's most important works of art. The aim of the Surrealists was o suroruse and confront the spectator by offering an alternative view of reality. Cybernetic Lobster Telephone brings together two objects in a way that had only been seen once before - in Dali's 1936 sculpture. By placing the lobster's sexual organs over the mouthpiece of the phone, he even introduced a surrealistic sexual nature to the inanimate phone. Dali saw the forms of lobster and telephone as interchangeable, once writing, "I do not unuderstand why, when I ask for a grilled lobster…I am never served with a cooked telephone".
