Unconscious Realities

Some History

Freud was a very famous psychologist who studied and created psychoanalysis, which depended a lot on the unconscious of a person and dreams which were also generated by the unconscious according to his theories. In his therapy sessions with his patients he used to use a technique called Free Association where he would have said a particular word, and the patient would need to name the first thing that came to his mind in a short period of time. The surrealists were really interested in Freud's studies and started to generate their art from their unconscious.

Unconscious Realities takes some important factors from both the Surrealists and Freud's studies. The program consists of 2 parts, a small quiz which is timed and a random generated surreal collage. The timed quiz resembles Freud's Free Association technique where an answer needs to be given without a lot of thought. The result is very similar to what the surrealists used to do in their artworks.
