The series of staged images are inspired by Freud’s essay - “Beyond The Pleasure Principle”. The essay describes humans as struggling between two opposing drives, as if being in a suspended state of permanent temptation to choose one or the other: Eros, which produces creativity, harmony, sexual connection, reproduction, and self-preservation; and Thanatos, which brings destruction, repetition, aggression, compulsion, and self-destruction. Having these in mind I tried to find a way to visually manifest some of the Freudian terms & concepts as if seen and experienced through my POV.
