When Alice Cooper Met Salvador Dali in New York City, 1973

In 1973 Alice Cooper came to New York City at the invitation of Salvador Dali. The artist wanted to make a piece centered around Alice Cooper. The finished piece was a hologram entitled “First Cylindric Chromo-Hologram Portrait of Alice Cooper’s Brain.”

The surrealist then handed Cooper a sculpture of his brain, sculpted out of plaster (or something), with a chocolate eclair running down it`s middle and ants crawling all over it. The painter said, “This is Dali's version of Alice Cooper's brain,” to which Cooper replied, “Wow, I never thought I'd ever get this.” And so the first 3-D hologram was inspired.















Here's a less than 2 minute video footage about the meeting:
