Woods; Green Silence by Daniel Kovalovszky

The woods do not care for the loud, suffocating city life were we people are trying to live or rather trying to survive. The trees are doing their own things that have been gently hardcoded inside them by a superior energy

The woods do not care for the loud, suffocating city life were we people are trying to live or rather trying to survive. The trees are doing their own things that have been gently hardcoded inside them by a superior energy. The trees exist in an almost imperceptible perpetual motion as they are changing and breathing.

While in the man created world a futureless race, alienation and a kind of fossilized economic crisis are going on that are here among the woods appear rather distant. This faraway, ancient silence embodies everything and embraces those who step inside. This silence is what I am searching for in places like this. Searching for the boundless in the silence. Searching for the beginning in the infinite. My beginning. When I step into the land of trees then I can fully give myself over to this peaceful search and for a time I can abandon the man created world. At times like this, suddenly a new space enfolds me. The desired infinite space. This is the time when I can truly begin to breathe and I feel as if I breathe together with nature. It is a specific silence with a great power inside it and in this silence man is able to feel something from the greatness and peacefulness of what the dimensions of the ever-expanding life means. In the woods – without people – everything is perfect. In the woods, nothing can be false or wrong. The dried branches, fallen leaves, the thunderstruck tree trunks are what they are supposed to be. This is the foundation, the base, the substructure, the one hundred percent that set the mark to go by. There is nothing that is unnecessary, nothing is missing; everything is in place the way everything is supposed to be. There is order and silence over here. Silence which is the friendliest and the most tender substance. One cannot crush himself through loudly, because silence allows only silent people to walk through it. This is how it’s nature works. Silence is a malleable currency. At times one can utilize it at other times lose something by it. At times, it’s rated high at other times it’s rated low. At times, it does worth a lot at other times it doesn’t worth much. Nowadays it does worth a lot.

 I’ve been working on this long-term and personal project for three years. I’m experimenting and watching nature that surrounds me. I closely pay attention to the passing time, the connection between nature and me and this silent monitoring of nature somehow therapeutically fades into photography. I’m attempting to find those “perfect” details of nature that is deeply hidden from our gluttonous civilization. I had no intention to create conventional masterpieces taken from nature, I didn’t want to take advantage on the cheap chances nature offered. All I wished for was to give myself over to solitude, to the weird shape shifting of time as it was slackening its pace. To the tiny shifting of nature, where nothing happen only the demonstration of nothing. [Official Website]
