Iceberg Theory

Sojeong Lee

Info: The life we live, see, and experience around us is, according to Sigmund Freud, only the tip of the iceberg of consciousness. Our feelings, motives, and decisions are, in fact, influenced by the unconscious mind as the primary source of human behavior. Impossible to reach purposely and protected by various defense mechanisms (such as repression or denial), this part of the iceberg is revealed only in tongue slips and through dreams. And for Sojeong Lee (*1993, KR), documenting these flashes of unconsciousness became a pivotal aspect of her artistic practice.
