"Things locked" is a printmaking project about how people consciously or unconsciously lock several things of their lives in their minds. Those things locked are something special like emotions, memories and good or bad experiences. This project is based on the psychoanalysis theories of Sigmund Freud and it seeks to represent the meaning of the human beings’ hidden emotions and feelings.
