Reading 5 - Uncanny

Freud discusses an important concept for artists in this reading, but I was not particularly amused by the sandman story. I never really knew much about the "sandman" or the actual bedtime story, but I had no idea it was so violent and grotesque!

In any event, the idea that anything we perceive can become "real" if we perceive it as being such, is important. It is a tool we can use as artists to evoke emotion or reaction from our viewers, and one that we ourselves can use when sourcing inspiration.
