“When one goes by in a rush, but glances peacefully, the foulest becomes art.” – DeDios.dk
All any of us want, is more time. Be where we are and not somewhere else. Chaos reigns in our lives with chores to do, goals to achieve, bills to pay, things to fix,
tic-toc, tic-toc, tic-toc…
Yet, sometimes, something catches our attention. It stays for just a second or even less than that. But it is in that moment when everything makes sense, when peace showers our souls and we are able to see, we are able to understand…sometimes its like if things, objects were alive.
And suddenly the flag outside a school or a windmill in the middle of the road; the Viking who took this same road to rest or to build a place to share his faith, all collide. And suddenly it doesn’t matter the time when it happens… it is the moment that we share. It is as if we saw the same tree to set ourselves to rest and reflect.
And suddenly time is not important because more than a thousand years ago, this very same thing; this sentiment, this very moment caught someone’s attention. And breaking the gap of time we coincide.
Tic-toc, tic-toc, tic-toc…click.
De Dios intention is to capture that forgotten second, that moment that seems invisible to those eyes that live in a rush. It is his intention that with this set of images, the heart of the spectator opens up and is sensible enough to seek those intimate moments where peace annuls any rush, where peace makes us able to find the beauty of art.
