“HiveMind” created by Mark Leichliter is found in front of the Old Town Library in Fort Collins, Colorado.  It is made from fabricated Stainless Steel measuring 9.5’H 4’W 10”D. It   consists of a central monolith with two sides faced with polished stainless steel hexagons. On one side these hexes are flat, in essence creating a mirror. The opposite side has hexagons which are rolled to make each one slightly convex – also creating a mirror, but one where the reflected subject is broken up into multiple images.


This double exposure image of “HiveMind” is submitted to Dutch Goes The Art!‘s photo challenge: Art.

“Thinking back then…we were just at that age when we knew a few things about ourselves – about who we were, how we were different from… – but hadn’t yet understood what any of it meant…by the time a moment like that comes along, there’s a part of you thats been waiting…there’s a whisper going at the back of your head… So you’re waiting, even if you don’t quite know it, waiting for the moment when you realize that you really are different…”

While walking through an area in Fort Collins, Colorado known as  “Old Town.” I was guided with an intention to be open to whatever offered an unique perspective.  It is my thought that this reflective image of a building’s entrance fits Robyn’s ‘See Differently’ challenge.
