Brass Art, Salford

    Press/Media: Research

    Description

    In the second of their Shadow Worlds series, collaborative trio Brass Art (featuring Anneke Pettican from the University of Huddersfield) turn their penetrative attention to the ghosts concealed within Sigmund Freud’s former London home. The kinetic laser-scanning and electro-acoustic technology drafted in to capture their on-site performances, may suggest hi-tech objectivity, but the outcome is distinctly more psychic art than scientific fact. The precise definitions of material objects leak auras. Brass Art intuit there is something going on here beyond the sober-sighted gaze of curious tourists. Freud would have had a field day analysing what they are really up to.
