Freud's House forms the second chapter of on-going project Shadow Worlds | Writers' Rooms. During a period of residency, the artists inscribe themselves into the domestic space of Sigmund Freud's former London home. Using hacked Kinect laser-sensors and Processing software to capture intimate-scaled performances throughout the rooms, staircase and hallway, Brass Art develop a visual response to the notion of the uncanny using strategies of repetition and simultaneous doublings. This doubled version creates a central axis around which the architecture of Freud’s House revolves, producing an unsettling spatial description of the interior.
