Creature depicts the human ability to make a home for oneself. Self psychologists like Heinz Kohut tell us that we project the notion of home onto many diverse locations. We see our homes as extensions of ourselves and thus have complex relationships with them. As we travel between the familiar and the unfamiliar, our concept of who we are changes. Creature portrays this with the surreal depiction of individuals as they travel from the outside world to their homes. We follow one woman, Imogen's, commute between the two and see, through her eyes, others doing the same.
