The A Ha! Experience

Julie Zando

1988, 04:30 minutes, colour, English


The "Aha-erlebnis (experience)" is the moment when a child first recognizes his own image in a mirror. It is an experience critical to the development of intelligence and identity. It is also a moment when the "self" is surrendered to the control of an external influence. (Described by Lacan as the "assumption of the armour of an alienating identity.")
