Surreal Estate

Tumim and Prendergast’s project Surreal Estate uses the built environment as a metaphor for the human condition. We are influenced by Surrealism, a European cultural movement developed in the aftermath of World War One. The Surrealists created drawing and writing games to free their thoughts and imagination. For Surreal Estate we played a game created by André  Breton called The Exquisite Corpse and created vivid and absurd fictions in and around buildings.
