Dance of Elements: FIRE
FIRE IS DIVINE EXPRESSION IN MOTION
Visionary and Video Artist Maurice Spees exceptional work.
Maurice was one of the first VJ’s which means visual jockeys in the Benelux in 1992. He decided to cary on his carrier as a video artist in 2000.
His visual art is extraordinary, while he explores the realm of Spirit and the Divine in everything he captures. Throughout his life he has been fascinated by living creation and the elements of nature, how everything organically unfolds how it all collaborate into wholeness.

“I have always been fascinated by how fire and water evolves. This artwork came like a revelation to me, one day while reaching a trance state watching flames evolve, suddenly time stopped and it was like I was watching a dance of Spirits. And constantly a ten pointed star appeared within my gaze. This inspired me to ask the question how it would unfold when witnessing it in slow motion.
I have been drawn to the Spirit in everything, everything is alive and has Spirit. And I am exploring how we can capture this Spirit on camera.
While with your eye you can not follow a single flame while they change shape and jump around rapidly, as an artist I wanted to explore what would happen if I use a special camera that can intensify the shuttercount so much that it does not just shoot slowmotion, but also every single jump.
And with new technology I found a way, just like nature always finds a way.
It’s a powerful visual meditation tool for those who like to meditate with open eyes. In India they call this work acupuncture for the minds eye.”
This is the result.
