“For the visible, sensitive things are an essence of the invisible; out of the invisible, unfathomable has emerged the visible, understandable (…).” Jakob Böhme

Only film and animation were able to show us what was hitherto hidden from the eyes: In Smith’s enchanting time-lapse film, we see the blossoming of flowers in the light for the first time – a visual poem about time.

“Every man in this world carries within himself heaven and hell; whatsoever quality he awakens the same will burn in him, the fire of which the soul is capable.” Jakob Böhme

God’s temple is not a cold stone building or a mighty fortress, but a living organism. You, within yourself.
