We humans are merely giving a guest performance on planet earth. Comparing both the cosmic and the human scales, our lives shrink to a blink of an eye.

Samaya is a word taken from Sanskrit, the ancient Indian language having a broad meaning far beyond a single word. In this project’s context the rich meaning of samaya should primarily transpose two factors: the common connection and the concept of time.

In their visuals Klaus Fengler and Franz Walter depict the unalterable bonds between humans and nature as the central theme, their symbiosis being the athletic motion.

Embedded into the context of time, nature becomes life itself and her elemental forces interacting with the sheer existence of humankind.
