‘Homely But Not At Home’ is a visual exploration of Stanley Kubrick’s 1980 cult horror masterpiece The Shining, analysed in the context of Sigmund Freud’s 1919 seminal paper ‘Das Unheimliche’, or directly translated ‘The Uncanny’.
‘Homely But Not At Home’ pays homage to Kubrick’s genius and seeks to explore, interrogate and subtly visualise the themes of ‘Das Unheimliche’ in the context of Freud’s work. The publication has been bathed in an uncanny aesthetic, implementing; colour, composition, symmetry, foreshadowing, doubling and a strictly imposed numerical system, to construct a subliminal semantic language drenched in intense and unnerving collages of cinematography.
The publication was awarded Merit classification in the ISTD Student Assessment.
