J.G. Ballard on the Influence of Surrealist Art

"[T]he surrealists have been a tremendous influence on me, though, strictly speaking, corroboration is the right word. The surrealists show how the world can be remade by the mind.... 
"[I]n all my fiction, I’ve used the techniques of surrealism to remake the present into something at least consonant with the past."

-- J.G. Ballard in the Paris Review interview
