In Silent Garden René Beekman pursues his quest for the boundaries of the perception and experiencing of time and its passing by means of sound, the moving image and their mutual associations. He reduces computer animation to the altering of the video image's duration and direction. Unlike Illud Tempus, Silent Garden radiates a naturalism as shown by glimpses of fauna and water. The dynamism of images, colours and vibrations (which acquire an extra dimension by the specific use of music) transports viewers who maintain their openness into a realm where perception becomes dormant, where the unexpected can occur. Like shutting your eyes tightly yet peeping though your eyelashes.
