gethsemane 1....gethsemane 2....gethsemane 3....gethsemane 4

 

This video, entitled 'Gethsemane' is inspired by the poem by Rudyard Kipling.

Kipling describes the moments during the Great War when the soldiers in the front line were about to endure mustard gas and meet their 'predestined' fate.He parallels their plight with Christ's time in the garden of Gethsemane shortly before crucifixion.

The video depicts swirling smoke and flying burning embers, its scale again difficult to ascertain. The video is slowed down revealing the behaviour of the smoke particles in an unfamiliar and liquid-like manner.
