The Observer, 2013

This man from Sri Lanka was actually not observing the sky. In reality, he was a palm reader. Upon seeing his intricate hand maps, my imagination took over. According to yoga philosophies, we have different energy centers or chakra’s. If it would be possible to look into the head from above, you would see these energy centres as concentric circles. Up to you to decide if this man is dreaming about the universe, or about his own energy!
