The uncanny is defined by the experience of something familiar and at the same time unfamiliar which instills a sense of unease and fear. These ideas find resonance with Jason Pilarski who, in the 1990’s, took inspiration from everyday objects such as office dividers, the sides of vans and plastic covers. While viewers may recognize their stylistic language as having been drawn from industrial design, their new context and reconfiguration give them an oddly confounding appearance which does not allow for easy identification or categorization.
