My art history professor was trying to explain how surrealist artists produce the sense of uncanny by making familiar things seem strange and unfamiliar.
Prof. MC, "One of my favorite things to do is to look at myself in the mirror. Hehehe. The more you look, the stranger and more alien the familiar face becomes. Believe me, just give yourself a minute. I give myself a minute every hour."
LOL I can't tell if Prof. MC was being philosophic and psychoanalytic or just plain narcissistic.
