The New York Times front page of September 12, 2001 marks a pivotal moment in time, as the onset of an imploding global transition in sociopolitical history. With its ripple effect still present and ongoing, the day after the fall of the WTC signify the beginning of a long and collective aftermath struggle for peace. The truths that were realized regarding worldwide financial and political stability, were the first indication of the need towards a global awakening and so are depicted here in the mixed palette of black, white and gold, indicative of the initial stage of awareness. In that way, the sociopolitical reality of a nation, by attesting to the individual and collective struggle, becomes the connecting link between real life and the unconscious process, while a political phenomenon becomes the vessel through which the need for self-development is highlighted.
