In the modern world, try as you might, you’ll never get away from time. It’s everywhere you look — your phone, computer screen and your watch, if you still wear one. Wherever you go, time is sure to follow. Sadly, time dictates our life in many ways, which is why it’s important to keep careful track of it, and yet equally important to remind the time who’s boss. Salvador Dali understood this. He melted and warped his clocks to illustrate that the schedules and deadlines we submit to are arbitrary increments of time, created by humans, who have no idea what they’re doing.

Step into Salvador Dali’s dream world with the addition of a single quirky item in your room: the legendary Melting Clock, in three dimensions. Not only is it practical in keeping perfect time, but unlike other clocks, the melting clock shows us that time is just a figment of our collective imaginations. The surreal appearance of the clock reminds us not to take time too seriously.

So if you’re looking for more weirdness in your life, look no further. Next time reality gets just a little bit too real, give yourself a healthy dose of surrealism.
