Den Himmel muss man sich wegdenken

HD Video

This video appears to be a landscape. Like a mountain contour it slowly drifts up and down. Stagnant, like bulks of lava, the masses a floating through the image frame. The peaks and valleys of the waves are the surface of an ocean. The sequences have been recorded with a high-speed camera in only a few seconds.
