This website presents the outcome of Danny R. Jennings's creative production PhD research. Through experimental film the research has investigated the sublime self-transcending tendencies of the natural world, that is, the tendency of natural phenomena to reveal frontiers of matter, space, time and human perception. The work employs an organic transcendental film style that functions to solicit the metaphysical imagination and dream-like modes of perception.
