Beyond the surface

steel installation at Lost Berlin Artfestival - 2017

Discover, explore and get lost in a space beyond the surface.

This polygonic installation is inspired by Freuds iceberg model theory. Freud used the analogy of an iceberg to describe the three levels of the mind.

Dip in a world of enlighten shapes and grasp the energy of this organic steel creation.

On the surface is consciousness, which consists of those thoughts that are the focus of our attention now, and this is seen as the tip of the iceberg. The preconscious consists of all which can be retrieved from memory.
The third and most significant region is the unconscious. Here lie the processes that are the real cause of most behavior. Like an iceberg, the most important part of the mind is the part you cannot see. This installations shows this hidden part of the iceberg under the water surface and enables the observer to make their unconscious conscious.

Let your feelings and curiosity guide the way though a sphere of unexpected impression and just let go your thoughts and prepared notions.
