Living life slowly

Having a crazy week? Take a moment to step into the forest with Dutch artist Floris Kloet. Savour the tranquillity and slow beauty of the natural world through his perfectly curated cinemagraphs.

Art is a way to escape the ever speeding up daily grind of modern life.

Increasing distractions have come to a point that they are mind numbing.

I think art is a good counterbalance to that.

When I am creating, everything slows down.

Thoughts disappear.

I find some connection to the universe again.

Art is my way to deal with modern life.

I’m inspired by nature.

The changing seasons, times of the day and new locations.

Lately I have been focusing a lot on light.

It transforms everything.

I love the way light falls during sunset.

Watching rays of sunlight that reflect on water in the middle of the day.

I live in Hilversum, Netherlands, and I love the natural progression of the seasons.

It is a dynamic that inspires me to create.

It has such a diverse beauty, from the city –

to the sea –

to the heath and the forest –

it just keeps giving.
