I explored the Uncanny in my negotiated practice as well as in my dissertation. Reading Reading Otto Ranks, Sigmund Freud and Mladen Dolar studies about the double and uneasiness that double evokes in people got me interested on subject of unique.

The subject is confronted with his double, the very image of himself (that can go along with the disappearance, or trading off, of his mirror image or his shadow), and this crumbling of the subject’s accustomed reality, this shattering of the bases of’ his world, produces a terrible anxiety.

Dolar, Mladen
