Abstract

“Freud’s House: The Double Mirror” - Brass Art’s new work - forms the second chapter of an ongoing project (Shadow Worlds | Writers’ Rooms) and allows them to enter the domestic spaces that selected authors occupied. For this recent project they investigated the Freud Museum, London having previously explored the Brontë Parsonage, Haworth. During a period of residency, the artists inscribed themselves
into the domestic space of Sigmund Freud’s former London home. Using Kinect laser-sensors and Processing software to capture intimate-scaled performances throughout the rooms, staircase and hallway, Brass Art developed a visual response to the notion of the uncanny using strategies of repetition and simultaneous ‘doublings’.
