Despite its title winking at a dubious essay by psychoanalysis' most notorious innovator, the images in this portfolio are far more theoretically pedestrian than may first meet the eye. Beginning with an analog image, we see multiplied times four an indecisive moment snapped from life’s vernacularity. While flipping, inverting, rotating, or all of the above each replica will not violate the original shot’s sanctity, whatever meaning it once conveyed its tetraptych dilutes in a formulaic shift from an earthbound perspective to an omnipotent view. At what point does aesthetic discovery uncover semi-unconscious ideological tropes inherent in bird’s-eye viewing?
