Subverting the Secondary Narrative
This body of work is based on the concept of the Uncanny, drawing upon the earlier theories of Ernst Jentsch who writing before the infamous work of Freud, is more influential in this project. Although Freud is considered the father of psychology and Jentsch almost forgotten, it is indeed his work on intellectual uncertainty that is referenced in the three images displayed. The narrative is left open-ended for the audience to experience Jentsch's concept of the Uncanny, as the uncertainty of the image is re-interrupted in the psyche of the viewer. It draws upon Jentsch's second guessing uncertainty, that is, what is 'real'.
