ISTD — Research

Wider Than The Sky is a project that uses the Freudian Theory of the Mind to highlight the nature of psycho-logical truth.


Initial research explored the concept of being overwhelmed with the breadth of psychological readings available. In a way that expresses the Freudian Theory of the unconscious mind, the research took the form of a sheet that folded out to nine times the original size, relative to the 1:9 ratio of the iceberg metaphor of the mind.


Along with the short film, The Unconscious Mind, the project was awarded a commendation by the ISTD judges — the only one given in Ireland in 2017.

Sincere thanks to my tutors at NCAD as well as Dr Jane Milton of the Melanie Klein Trust.
