Mirrors: Photos by Traci Griffin








Mirrors: Photos by Traci Griffin

Mirror images of trees as an attempt to create symmetry.
I’ve been working on this project on and off for almost 4 years. I read about symmetry in art, which seemed needlessly complicated. I learned that exact symmetry cannot be found in nature and allegedly the concept of symmetry in the universe has tormented famous philosophers for centuries. Perhaps this is why the images are slightly disconcerting. Personally, this project for me is simply about seeing something completely different in something so ordinary. It leaves you with a sense of wonderment and the possibility of a brand new synthesis.
