The subliminally surreal world of the cosmos: Cosmic Flower Unfolding

Cosmic flowers. Abstract, metaphysical creations for tripped out flower vendors.  Artist /animator Ben Ridgway’s film takes you through the rabbit hole, zooms past Stanley Kubrick world only to bloom in a fractal new space of the surreal.

Here’s his new video:

Ben says “My abstract animations investigate the metaphysical features of reality. They are designed to stimulate archetypal associations and invite the viewer to make personal connections to the visual and auditory experience without any reliance on narrative or spoken language.”

Connections? For sure I make them. Flower of Life? Now that’s a whole other story. I love the art, it’s the maths that boggles me. Whichever, Ben’s work is very impressive (life-changing on shrooms, or any other hallucinogenic of preference).

Psytrance and the Flower of Life:

No surprise why psychonauts and other psychedelically inclined subcultures adopted the flower of life. From tattoos to backdrops it’s replaced the sixties PLUR. They were close with ‘Flower Power’.

The millennium saw a new wave of collective conciousness fueling deep connections,co-creation and universal awareness.
