Jenny’s recitation of Jabberwocky reminded me of this video collaboration between Walt Disney and surrealist painter Salvador Dali. Both Destino and Lewis Carol’s poem depict whimsical, non-sensical journeys that use this absurdity to comment on reality. Destino has a “down the rabbit hole”- dream like quality. Seemingly arbitrary objects such as the hieroglyph have deeper emotional significances. For instance, the hieroglyph symbolizes the loss of time and the image of the woman’s figure which reoccurs abstractly symbolizes the fact that a we (humankind) cannot live on alone.
