11:11 Mirroring Consciousness
How often do we pause and pay attention to the messages the world is mirroring back to us?
11:11 is an ongoing project that illustrates the introspective significance of the moment; the notion that every experience, relationship, decision, and habit is a mirror. I capture this mirror and freeze space from within consciousness, nothing is constructed.
Each image appears as a question, a paradox, a koan: a means to challenge the limits of the analytical mind and engage contemplation. They are subtle, hidden moments that reveal insights, guidance, and answers.
These photographs blur the lines between perception and illusion and depict varying exchanges between dark and light. The contrast and confusion that appears within their simplicity and silence necessitates a heightened awareness. It forces us to look deeper inside while witnessing the everyday world around us.
