If you expected randomness, madness, camels, you wrong. This is comprehensive Surrealism.

sur·re·al·ism   (s-r-lzm) n.
  1. A 20th-century literary and artistic movement that attempts to express the workings of the subconscious and is characterized by fantastic imagery and incongruous juxtaposition of subject matter.
  2. Literature or art produced in this style.

(From Dictionary.com)

Surrealism, as any expert will tell you, grew out of the Dada movement. The main difference, however,  is in the purpose. Dada IS deliberately anti-art without reason. Surrealism IS a reaction against the destruction wrought by the "rationalism" that had guided European culture and politics in the past that cuased such famously great and wonderful wars, especially the First of the World's. The 'Pope' of Surrealism, Andre Breton, kicked one Salvador Dali out of the movement. Despite this, true surrealism is onylachieved through self-induced paranoid visions, or paranoid-critical thinking as Dali invented.

This is NOT Surrealisme. It's too political. It is semi-seubconcious. Offensive. DaDA.
