American Psyche: The Unlit Cave is a collection of images made in the United States from 2004 to 2019. The photographs are visual metaphors mirroring the artist’s reactions to America’s colonialism and its inability to live up to its ideals. Heavily influenced by Carl Jung’s concepts of synchronicity and the unconscious, it uses American symbols to create a unique record of our current moment.
