with our own mind
- Confrontation is a conceptual photography set referring to mental debate situations.Freud argued that the human mind and personality are made up ofthree parts:
a primitive part of the personality that pursues only pleasure and instantgratification.
that part of the personality that is aware of reality and is in contact withthe outside world. It is the part that considers the consequences of an actionand deals with the demands of the id and superego.
contains our social conscience and through the experience of guilt and anxietywhen we do something wrong, it guides us towards socially acceptable behaviour.
According to Freud, the ego dwells in the conscious mind and the id andsuperego are in the area of our
unconscious. Freud argued that our personality should be in a state of dynamicequilibrium (balance) and if there is too much id, superego or a weak ego thenan individual will become unbalanced and possibly suffer from psychologicaldifficulties. This is the basis of the psychoanalytic explanation of mentalillness.
This project is about confrontation of our own thoughts, and making peace with our mind.
