    Pretty clear to me. The water is clearly drawing your eyes to the lady, and once you see her, you see two cats tangling in a very coincidental place. The whole piece has a very euphoric feeling, and the man is making an absolute fool of himself.

    What`s it titled, "Man`s Mind Immediately Upon Seeing a Hot Chick?"

    "... does this remind anyone else of Bioshock?"
    Not sure where you`re going with that one baalthaazaq. Yes, water and crazy artists are both important parts of bioshock (and there`s 3 dead cats on the game too) but I can`t say I looked at this picture and thought "Hey! This photo reminds me of an FPS set in a broken-down underwater metropolis full of insane mutants and creepy children".

    I can`t remember exactly where I read this, but this photographer has a ton of pictures like this.

    What happened was they had the man jump, the cats tossed in and a bucket of water thrown, all at the same time. It took them a few re-dos to get everything perfectly.

    And if you look closely to the left of the screen, you see another man there manipulating something to lift the window and painting, and he`s holding the chair.

    Early research into the cause and source of WTF had some very promising leads. However, it was misunderstood by the sponsors and funding was quickly cut as the world let out a collective "WTF?!" at the findings.

    That is artist Salvadore Dali, from Life Magazine, in the 1950s. The photographer was emulating Dali`s surrealist painting int he photo. Read a book, OP, and the world might be a little less mysterious to you.

    hey! Wait a minute! That was my dream i had 2 weeks ago! I have been robbed of my precious dream. Well...maybe not *precious*...as i actually woke up and dismissed this scene as something that had probably traumatized me in childhood.

    But as a Canadian, i will now pardon this steeling of thoughts and by finding a disabled otter and giving him raw potatoes and rocks to break on his stomach as he thinks they are clams and rocks or something. Do not worry! I will feed them cheerios and puffed pastry if they cannot break th potatoe to eat them. I promise!

    A house floated out into space after a crazy scientist accident went wrong. The man was an olden day pervert, and since there was no internet he had to paint his own porn. He started picking his nose with a paintbrush after he got a nosebleed. The part of body you see behind him is a man that was going to try and kill him. The water is from the broken pipes that went into space with him. That thing on the top is his piano. And as for the cats, they were having a 3-some and then the water came and blasted them. One of them flew away but the other 2 stayed together because his claws were right on his back. Oh, and he that window on a stand was there because He wanted to get a new window, and was planning on cutting out a piece of the wall before he was sidetracked by the urge to make a porn painting. Can I have my 5 points now? 8-)

    Well the great thing about art is anyone can have any sort of idea of what they think a piece means; but one thing I noticed in particular is that the objective seems to be perspective in mid air and/or mid-action.

    The canvas is in the air, as well as the chair, the cats, the water, even Dali himself.

    I think moments pass so fast we fail to see certain details, perhaps all Dali was trying to do was slow/ freeze a moment so we can view it from another perspective.

    It`s not Man Ray, it`s Philippe Halsman. Although Man Ray and Dali were acquainted.

    Its a real picture. The guy jumped, one friend threw water, one held the chair, one took a picture. The cats and everything else are hanging my strings from the ceiling

    The photo is by Philippe Halsman. The title is Dali Atomicus. It is part of a series of "Jumpology" photos which have various famous people photographed whilst jumping. Halsman had some kind of theory of personality traits linked to the way people jumped.
