COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS: RED

The juxtaposition of the anthropomorphic target and a call for gratitude lays open the chance to consider a discordant way we can look at our lives in this moment. The target is an object by which one can gauge their ability with a gun and this is an objective truth. The target is also a symbol of fearing and it is a subjective reality and lets you fill in the blank and consider what you are grateful for, if anything, but it would be hard not to be grateful not to be the target.

789 when placed on the anthropomorphic target becomes a mechanism to gauge the accuracy of the shot. the kill shot. I began to think about the numerology of the numbers on the target and inspired by the study of numbers and by childlike rhymes: 4,5,6 pick up sticks, thinking about 7,8,9 similarly.

“if numbers were people they would share distinct qualities with the extreme personalities of the gods, like Poseidon or Kronos. The number 7 is the number of the spiritual quest. Even if the person who resonates with the number 7 is in a secular profession, they will pursue their goals with an energy and determination that is nothing short zealotry If the number 8 were a person, it would be the powerful decision-making childlike force. The number 8 is known as the number of balance and harmony. It’s shape exemplifies his need for balance best. The number 9 relates to wisdom and responsibility, and the ultimate goal of the number 9 is to serve humanity and make it a better place for all to live in.”
