The Collective

I was inspired by Carl Jung’s theory of the collective unconscious in the human psyche. Jung claims that in this collective unconscious, we share similar elements of unconsciousness with other people through archetypes passed down by generations. People often put a large focus on diversity, but despite the obvious uniqueness of every individual, we are all human beings. I wanted to make a piece focusing on common links between humans. The milk serves to represent purity, birth and the collective unconscious.
