Dramas of the Soul
How does a person respond when their mind is invited to explore a 'past life' under hypnosis? Are the individual experiences products of fantasy, repressed memories or metaphors for themes occurring in the subjects' everyday lives? Reflecting upon a personal lack of historical narrative arising from displacement as a refugee from Vietnam in my early life, this work sets out to discover whether an 'autobiographical memory' or traces of a person's origins could be revealed from within the unconscious. Presented as a series of videos, this project witnesses from the outside, signs of the vivid internal narrative taking place within the unconscious mind of the subject.
