“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.
