Helena Noordhoff’s "Realphantasie" features frosted Mylar and acrylic ink monoprint inkblots, zines, and an original audio score. Perceptions of inkblots vary among individuals; in order for the viewer to find a connection or a moment beyond the surface, they engage with the abstract images to recognize images and shapes. The zines, consisting of collections of drawings and writings, summon further consideration from the viewer. An audio composition imagines the sounds of anxiety and its fluctuations. Collectively, these works ask the viewer to engage with, perceive, and contemplate the unconscious mind and mental health, thus inviting the development of empathy.
