‘Shadow aspect’ refers to shadow in Jungian psychology, which may refer to the entire part of the human psyche which is hidden and not fully conscious. For some years now I have had an interest in the relationship between the subconscious mind and creativity, leading to a set of works, including Jung's Shadow (pf,vc), Lingua e Realidade (pf,vn,vc) and Arabesques (vn,pf) which attempt to play with and subvert elements of conscious and unconscious decision making in the creative process. My notational approach here was to divide register and dynamic elements hierarchically, in an attempt to achieve a sort of 3 dimensional ‘physical’ space representing layers of conscious and subconscious activity.
