Decalcomania is a transfer technique, developed in the 18th century, in which ink, paint, or another medium is spread onto a surface and, while still wet, covered with material such as paper, glass, or aluminum foil, which, when removed, transfers a pattern that may be further embellished upon. The technique was adopted by the Surrealists to create imagery by chance rather than through conscious control.
The use of Decalcomania emphasizes chance and complexity in the creation of art and the universe. Which created which, and what the difference is may be left up to the viewer/ artist.
