'All' is in smAll.

The questioning of Being is an experience of Being in its strangeness. […] The question is itself a manifestation of the relationship with Being. Being is essentially alien and strikes against us. We undergo its suffocating embrace like the night, but it does not respond to us. […] And if it is more than this question, this is because it permits going beyond the question, and not because it answers it. What more there can be than the questioning of Being is not some truth, but good 
- Emmanuel Levinas, Existence & Existents

Questioning other beings means paying attention to them. It is definitely good to go beyond being curious about others and opening up to otherness, by seeking to understand oneself.

To see a world in a grain of sand, and a heaven in a wild flower.
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand, and eternity in an hour - William Blake

One tiny thing is an opening to the bigger world, a start to understanding the wider whole. In other words, the most precious moment could be a bridge to convey us towards the eternal. In the sharing of the breath of the moment there is a movement towards breathing together in an unlimited space.

I have been exploring approaches for creative ways of seeing, capturing and composing with the moments of interaction with people and creatures, that I encounter as unexpected gifts.

Ellie Kyungran Heo is an artist-filmmaker. She makes experimental films by collaging performances with documentary footage of her subject, tracking how her relationship with the subject changes over time, with respect to conflict, intimacy and sensitivity.

She received an MA from the Royal College of Art in 2015 and a BA from the Chelsea College of Arts in 2013.
