Short Stories of the Transparent Mind
by Joakim Eneroth
Publisher's Description
What is our direct experience? What does it mean that we are aware, and how do we even define awareness? What does it truly mean to be alive in every moment?

Short Stories of the Transparent Mind personally and directly explores the nature of perception. The book contains a number of short photographic narratives pertaining to the filters—such as our underlying projections and expectations—through which we see the world.

The aim of Short Stories of the Transparent Mind is to show the openness and freedom that can be found when we tear down our habitual responses and subconscious beliefs. As humans, we often layer our preconceived notions and ideas on top of an existent reality not actually governed by our imposed systems of understanding. Short Stories uses visual experimentation to expose the naked moments that are there before we start to define, control, and obscure our experience with our interpretations. The stories draw attention to what we perceive before our dualistic mind asserts itself—before the judgmental tendencies of good or bad, right or wrong, begin to appear.

The vividly depicted stories show how difficult it is to keep our complex world neatly ordered, while simultaneously shedding light on the mind’s shifting nature. The book subtly points out how the mind’s identification with external objects and sensations prevents it from seeing itself.
