The theme of BODA Hotel’s decoration is A Fantastic Journey, the focal point of which is dream, thus associated directly with Surrealism, induced by the theory of the subconscious. Its spatial design is inspired by Surrealist artists Max Ernst, Rene Magritte, Paul Delvaux, Salvador Dali and Joan Miro and their masterpieces. The souls on canvas are transported into a three-dimensional space to pay tribute to these masters. Besides, the ingenious design allows the guests to savor the meanings of the Surrealist metaphors and thereby intellectualizes the entire space, so that the guests can pack their inner self in their baggage and move on to the next wonderful journey. Surrealist dream, which is not dominated by consciousness, symbolizes a human right to pursue freedom, the idea of which is embodied by art and conveyed in creation. A nod to five Surrealist masters: Rene Magritte, Max Ernst, Paul Delvaux, Salvador Dali, Joan Miro. The most moving passage from one of the Surrealist manifestoes: Apart from our recognized spirituality, our heart can be touched. We must be aware of our most private, spontaneous unadorned feeling of being touched. That is, we must watch out for the feeling of being touched, like that of a deity who first descends from heaven and lands in this world… This is the primal belief that we have stuck to throughout the process of carrying out the design.
