In an essay presented to the 16th Congress of the International Psychoanalytical Association in 1949 the French psychoanalyst Jacques Lacan located the formation of the self in the mirror reflection. Identity, as Lacan understood it, arose in the recognition of the image as oneself. For the most part the representation in art of the human form has followed the same model: by playing the role of the mirror, the art work re-enacts the moment of recognition in an exchange that ultimately reassures the viewer – Natalie Haddad

Consider the suggestive confusion between wonder and wander – as if getting lost and digression were at the root of amazement, of change, even of knowledge – Casey Kaplan
