Electroacoustic composition: Monty Adkins
Programmer: Spencer Roberts

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.

Work commissioned and acquired by University of Salford's Commission to Collect Programme. Both artwork and equipment available for loan.
