There are some moments when nothing around us calls our attention. The environment looks grey and motionless. In such moments, a dark sensation invades us and minutes seem to never end. Conversely, the clock accelerates when we are aware that the bright world around us is changing in amazing ways. We develop a sense of time mainly because we feel the world is changing second after second through our sight. Literally, we see the time passing in front of us.

Millions of bright beams cross in every possible direction and collide with movements, colors, textures and forms.

CHANGE ON THE SPOTLIGHT

Every time we open our eyes, we witness a festival of lights. Millions of bright beams cross in every possible direction and collide with movements, colors, textures and forms. This restless phenomenon results in a visual percussion that shapes the luminous universe we know. The rhythm of light is not one that we can follow; its speed is imperceptible for us. However it leaves traces of its path all over the place and enables us to witness how our environment renews with every breath.

Change on the spotlight

If everything in our world suddenly stops, how would we be able to perceive the difference between one minute and another?

THE PASSAGE OF TIME

Life is about changes, about day and night, about crops growing and leaves falling, about the appearance of wrinkles and scars, about millions of changing instants. Our eyes enable us to be aware of the passage of time. They send signals to our brain when something is changing around us. Light readapts to a new environment almost a million times per second and our eyes recognize every change.

The passage of time

Think about it. If everything in our world suddenly stops, how would we be able to perceive the difference between one minute and another? It would be an unbearable blindness.

Imagine how it would be to trap one of these moments, like the precise instant when a flower begins to bloom.

HOW TO STOP THE TIME

Our lives are a rainbow of experiences. Some good, some bad and a few that leave us breathless. Do you remember the first time you felt such a deep sense of peace and realization of how wonderful life is? In such moments, most of us close our eyes in an unconscious attempt to stop the time for a second. Imagine how it would be to trap one of these moments, like the precise instant when a flower begins to bloom. Hoja Verde flowers did it. Check out their beautiful range of preserved roses.
