Circle of Abstract Ritual (COAR) // Jeff Frost

“This film took 300,000 photos, riots, wildfires, paintings in abandoned houses, two years and zero graphics to make. It changed my entire life.  Circle of Abstract Ritual began as an exploration of the idea that creation and destruction might be the same thing.” www.jeff-frost.com

Freed from everything, the plants shall head to the space

Bonsai in Space


Flowers in Space

Plants on the earth rooted in the soil, under the command of gravity.
Roots, soil and gravity – by giving up the links to life, what kind of “beauty” shall be born?
Within the harsh “nature”, at an attitude of 30,000 meters and minus 50 degrees Celsius,
the plants evolve into EXBIOTA (extraterrestrial life).
A pine tree confronting the ridge line of the Earth.
A bouquet of flowers marching towards the sun hit by the intense wind.
Freed from everything, the plants shall head to the space.
