Christina Osheim — The Uncanny
Posted on November 14, 2012
Christina Osheim consider the relationships between objects in surreal spaces.
Everything tends to make us believe that there exists a certain point of the mind at which life and death, the real and the imagined, past and future, the communicable and the incommunicable, high and low, cease to be perceived as contradictions.
– Andre Breton
I am interested in surreal spaces be they mental or physical. With my work I reference the body and function or utility, filtering them through the lens of my imagination to become something new. Gestalt psychology influences how I design, build, and display my work. I consider the relationships between objects and the implied interactions that give the viewer the ability to create a narrative with how they connect the dots. I question the objects we surround ourselves with and how we interact with the world; through this questioning I create surreal spaces that provide opportunity to come to a new understanding of how we exist in space.
