XIII, referring to the 13th Major Arcana tarot card in the traditional practise - the "No Name" card, has only been referred to its number, for making it sound less frightening. The spiritual meaning of this card indicates a "death" or "rebirth" (endings, change,..) and therefore implies an increase of self-awareness. Many tarot readers interprets this card as a change of thinking from an old way into a new way.

This ongoing self-awareness project, is named after the card's number and meaning, because of the therapeutic effects this photo series has to me.

By facing my fears, emotional scars and weaknesses through this art form, I give it attention and space that it needs. After reflecting on it, ultimate closure can be given. This ending is crucial to my personal growth, in order to achieve my fullest potential as an artist.
