7 mirrored plexi-glass laser-engraved light boxes of two 2x4’sheets (limited edition of 7)
projections by pablo gnecco
as a development from the crystal express train project, the travel and its stops were explored as 7 transformations leading to deeper awareness, inner connectivity and eventual dissolution of the self and its images. in her investigation of silence, ethereal spaces and "the secret gaze", samina engaged each of the travelers in a 2hr koan session - a buddhist technique of reflection that unveils mysteries of silence. 
the findings were used to construct 7 light boxes of 2 different reflective surfaces laser-inscribed with text and installed with lights. each box is a progression of the other, designed as a series of transformed gazes.
