An exploration of the development of identity through society and people’s understanding of the self. This work ties in with a broader conceptual project that encompasses the representation of identity in the form of archetypes. An archetype is a collectively assumed symbol, or way of behaving, a prototype upon which others are modeled. Jung proposed the existence of universal prototypes of ideas that channel experiences and emotions, resulting in recognisable/typical patterns of behaviour.
