1. Throughout history, many artists represented people and things in the world around them. The work of other artists is an expression of the inner self. Explain how Sandy Skoglund uses objects from the real world in her work, and what she is trying to convey.
2. How did the Surrealist works in the program reflect Sigmund Freud’s theories of psychoanalysis and the unconscious or subconscious mind?
3. Aboriginal artists have said that the true value of their work lies in the personal experience of “dreaming,” and not in the resultant visual images that are created. How is this view similar or different to non- Aboriginal artists who have represented their dreams in works of art?
