Abstract (Summary)

Cycles is a series of photographic images exploring the process of Active Imagination. Carl Jung's theories on Active Imagination, and the unconscious and the process of Individuation are what drive this body of work. The process of Active Imagination is the starting point for my artistic practice and is used to create sculptural sets that are then photographed. A series of steps are taken to produce each image, which illustrate the various stages that occur during this process. When viewed together the images create a sense of the cycles that define such a process. Once the images are finished a period of reflection and analysis is done to translate the unconscious' communication via these images. In the case of Cycles this communication is about the balance and integration of the masculine and feminine aspects of the psyche.
