Dorr Bothwell’s Memory Machine recalls the Surrealist roots of much postwar art. In this eerie, dreamlike landscape, the central form suggests a futuristic television set, supplier and preserver of modern memories. Dorr (or Doris) Bothwell worked and taught in the San Francisco Bay Area, another urban center that was a focus of art production in the forties and fifties.
