A working model of the personal unconscious as described in the work of pioneering psychologist Carl Jung comes alive.
Studying Jung for most of my adult life, I needed a way to envision the workings of the psyche. This project allowed me to do so. It is both accurate (as I understand the functions) and tougue-in-cheek (there is not a real "Dreamer's Cabinet of Wonders", but we all know the effect.)
insisted on the battered, rusted quality which speaks of the ancient ,
well-used design. Although parts seem very fragile, the major
structures are vey solid. I feel the metaphor is apt. The whole work
makes for long, curious study.
Timeless art for troubled times
