The Uncanny (Ger. Das Unheimliche - "the opposite of what is familiar") is a Freudian concept of an instance where something can be familiar, yet foreign at the same time, resulting in a feeling of it being uncomfortably strange or uncomfortably familiar.

For over three years, I am working now with the Uncanny; complicated by the fact that various horror genres move this topic in the wrong light. Ernst Jentsch (1906) defined the uncanny as something not familiar, occuring "intellectual uncertainty" and what you "do not knows".

This installation questioned "the uncanny" of the exhibition. Center of the topic "Expanded Screen" (supervised by Astrid Busch - FH Dortmund) takes the "external" communication with the space on screen - so the content is directly related to the interior.
