Interesting film where Zizek uses examples from films to explain aspects of psychoanalysis. He explains the importance of fantasy when negotiating reality. Without the illusion we lose our coordinates. Fantasy is the psychological truth of ourselves, whereas actual ‘reality’ is void and brutally meaningless, a void which stares back at us.
Anxiety is the only emotion which doesn’t deceive us. No one can properly articulate their desires. Disintegration of the material leads to spiritual.
Work where the voice is played back at a slight delay. Nancy Holt becomes self-conscoius and visibly anxious the effect makes her words overly drawn out and inorganic. The repeated voice becoming alien/other to the self.
1888 Wood Engraving depicting the ‘firmament’/vault of the sky and a section where it doesn’t join to the ground properly. Coming to the end of reality.
Work by Layla Rudneva-Mackay utilising text-to-speech software.
Meaning devoid of actual human presence. Language gone through technological filter. Something I experimented with briefly.
Experimenting with Z Brush with a view to using architecture’s 3D printer to print out a sculpture. Transfer of virtual information to a tangible object.
3D head I was working on.
