Picabia went on to show L’Œil at the Salon d’Automne in 1921, where it must have been seen as a display of Dada impudence. Picabia, after all, did not make it. He was more like the work’s maître d’. The word cacodylic , in addition, comes from the Greek for “foul-smelling,” and the very idea of a foul-smelling eye—Picabia has painted a large eye toward the bottom, which anchors the many signatures—has a Dada ring to it. Yet Picabia was right to call it “beautiful.” It is a work of formal strength and delicacy.
Although it takes place in an imagined future world of advanced technology, Minority Report attempts to embody a more "realistic" depiction of the future.  Spielberg decided that to be more credible, the setting had to keep both elements of the present and ones which specialists expected would be forthcoming. Thus Washington, . as depicted in the movie keeps well-known buildings such as the Capitol and the Washington Monument , as well as a section of modern buildings on the other side of the Potomac River. Production designer Alex McDowell was hired based on his work in Fight Club and his storyboards for a film version of Fahrenheit 451 which would have starred Mel Gibson . McDowell studied modern architecture, and his sets contain many curves, circular shapes, and reflective materials. Costume designer Deborah L. Scott decided to make the clothes worn by the characters as simple as possible, so as not to make the depiction of the future seem dated. 
As the lights come on, the seven clear-plastic lids of padded, coffin-like cribs rise up (three on each side and one in the rear). Six visible crew members - with a seventh unseen member in the rear - are lying prone in the bunks, each wearing a white loincloth or shorts. One of the crew members named Kane stirs first, slowly sits up, sleepily takes breaths, and then stands. A second crew member also awakens. They have been prematurely jarred awake from their hibernating, hyper-sleep, womb-like state by the electronic pulsing of the starship's computer, affectionately named 'Mother.' They have been forcibly 'birthed' or pushed out of the nest by 'Mother.' (Although they don't know it yet, an urgently-repeating radio signal - a distress signal - has been received from a downed space vessel on an uncharted planet, and the computer has responded by alerting the crew.)
