I'm not Phil, but I would say that it could be. Giorgio de Chricico for example, not necessarily uncanny but his work has a dark edge to it.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Giorgio_de_Chirico
surrealism CAN create an uncanny effect, yes... and Tom is absolutely right - I included de Chricico in the briefing presentation - check him out.
Interim Online Review 14/12/2010Hey Paul,In truth, I'm a bit concerned about you. You're engagement is off and I get a growing sense that you're struggling to remain positive. I may be way off, but you seem rather evasive recently and I'm wondering, perhaps, if you might be interested in discussing you Unit 2 experience further? I'd like you to email me - email@example.com - and reassure me.Regarding your IOR, it's clear you haven't organised your work as requested for the 'Green Light' review, so I can only respond in very general terms. I'm not impressed by your studentship, Paul. Your blog is a boring place to visit right now; you're hugely behind, both in terms of the reviews, the research, the thumbnails and the thinking. That is not to say that your nascent ideas aren't interesting - they are, but it's difficult for your tutor to feel any real excitement.I get the strongest feeling that, in truth, you resent design briefs generally, and that you consider yourself, first and foremost, a 'fine artist' who needn't truly concern himself with the needs and wishes of clients/audiences/criteria. If this is so, then I suggest you may want to rethink your decision to pursue CGAA - not because the course philosophically discourages 'art-based' ideas - but rather because you seem unwilling to adapt.
When you email me - and you should do so promptly - I'll want to know what your intentions are. If there are external circumstances now effecting your engagement, I'd like to hear about them. Make no mistake though, Paul - you're a talented individual - but you're not a special case. This is the course as written; of course there's room to wriggle and to customise to a degree, but you must engage and you must produce five weeks work - just like everyone else. I look forward to your correspondence and an explanation as to your current disappointing performance.More generally, follow this link for guidance notes re. your unit 3 assignment:http://ucarochester-cgartsandanimation.blogspot.com/2010/12/fao-cgaa-year-1-unit-3environment-essay.html
