Our world is a multi-dimensional reality. There are several dimensions which are invisible to the observation with the naked eye & nevertheless all the explanations given to it, it’s clear that there are dimensions that aren’t visible to us.

But what can’t be perceived with the naked eye, can sometimes become visible on a photograph. The word ‘optics’ comes from the Ancient Greek ‘optike techne.’ (The word ‘optos’ means ‘seeing’ or ‘visibility’ & the word ‘techne’ originally means something like ‘spiritual actus.’) The phenomenal appearance of things in the landscape, such as plants & trees, can easily be seen. & especially when the sun goes down, when the evening falls & it almost becomes dark, there is a certain ‘aura’ to see around things. This ‘auratic radiation’ is often attributed to electrostatic charges in things, a form of energy which would surround things as a result of atmospheric conditions.

Environ-mental tensions: things are energy! The colors that we see come from innumerable particles of concentrated energy. These energy-cells or prismata emit a lot of light that radiates in all directions. This pattern is very active & fluid & gives the impression of a colorful cloud.

I made a picture of something that exhibited many similarities with this ‘aura.’ Point of view: it was a warm spring/summer day, the birds were noisy busy getting ready for the evening to come. What you can see on this picture is a simple landscape & the moon, shining before the night, but it also shows a color-dimension which can’t be seen with the naked eye. An experience that makes you realize that things can be different than suspected at first sight …

The colors of the landscape seem to concentrate in the center as a bright yellow cloud surrounding the place where the moon would be in this picture, while the rest of the colors blend into the background ambiance: red, greenish and blue. But the different colors that become visible on this picture are actually non-static, so the problem is that this picture doesn’t seem to tell the whole story…

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
