ONGOING PROJECT: EYES OF PROTECTION

The protective eye, evil eye, or nazdar has many roots in ancient cultures and traditions from around the world. The eye is a symbol of conscious awareness. The eye looks out and says “I see you” while at the same time the seeing eye is being “seen” – the observer observed. This reciprocal relationship of viewer to the eye creates a feedback loop, hopefully one of positive energy. Energy follows thought. Thoughts become our reality. Each eye has its own inner eye – a mirror (or a void) in the center – to extend the idea that these are pieces intended for meditation and reflection. Each round dot, essentially a point of light (or perhaps a prayer) becomes something more, something substantive, when aggregated into a bigger whole. We are all individual and yet we are all inter-connected - we must remember this.
