OPEN YOUR EYES - © Pavel Maria Smejkal, 2004

There was silence. Silence and darkness. Their worlds merged. Open your eyes, please.

  

  

The artist introduces six pairs of very dark monochromatic prints in blue/green hues.
The images are at the threshold of visibility, but, when viewed carefully, legible.
On one side of the diptych are the artistís original photographs of people sleeping.
On the other side are modified photographs of people killed in violent crimes,
taken from old forensic literature.
