As an avid photographer, Susan Griffith-Jones has searched and shot ‘marvellous’ visions of places and people all over the globe. Combined with this love of the art of photography and through contemplation of the various techniques taught to her by her Spiritual Masters, over the years she has come to display the meanings of Universal Spiritual Truths in symbolic pictures, calling this kind of art, ‘Photo Collage Artwork’.
Many photos are carefully chosen within a certain theme, to express meanings within different geometrical shapes put together into designs that come to make up one whole shape of Sacred Geometrical significance.
Susan Griffith-Jones, author of Universal Osmosis, held an exhibition of her 5 photo collage art pieces in London, UK, in October-November 2016, which are included in this book:
1. ‘Two Keys, One Lock’: first version 2005, second version 2007.
2. ‘Pure Vision Transformed into Organised Confusion’: first version 2005, second version 2009, third version 2015.
3. ‘Mirror of Space’, 2012
4. ‘Rainbow Symphony’, 2014
5. ‘Key of Life’, 2016
This book describes the inner meanings of each of these large symbolic pictures in detail, and the background story of how and why they were made at specific moments in Susan’s life.
Ganga, Life of A River
Since 2007, Susan has been visiting various sections of the River Ganga, and both filming and photographing them.
Her extensive 13 year work on the river has lead her all the way from Ganga’s traditional source at Gaumukh, Gangotri down to Sagar Island, beyond Kolkata, where River Ganga meets the Bay of Bengal.
Woven into stories about her own journey along the river, as an undertone this book comments on historical, geographical, social, religious and environmental aspects of the River Ganges, but is polished off with deeper spiritual truths that are embedded into lessons learned along the way.
‘Visions of Bosnia…, a book about Kaleidoscopic Filmmaking’
Susan’s up and coming book, ‘Visions of Bosnia’ describes how she made a movie on the Bosnian Pyramid Complex, from the initial moment of the process when she heard about the place, to the actual production of the first draft of the movie.
But the journey was not at all straightforward!
Using the art form, ‘Kaleidoscopic Filmmaking’, here two photo collage art pictures, ‘Crystal of Time’ (2019) and ‘Diamond Lens, Doorway to Infinity’ (2020) that she first had to discover and make, are then embedded into the timeline of the movie through skilful use of timing, visuals, narration and music, so that the frequencies of Universal Symbolic Truths that are infused into the pictures are transmitted through the movie to the viewer.
The River Ganges
This is the story of Ganga, of life and death, of wondrous magic and of healing. Having already made 3 movies on River Ganges in Northern India, Susan is now starting the process of creating a new photo collage art piece, whose shape and internal make up will be embedded into the timeline of both a comprehensive movie on the whole River Ganges as well as shorter movies that reflect different aspects of activities along her banks. Following the art form, ‘Kaleidoscopic Filmmaking’, the frequencies of Universal Symbolic Truths that will be infused into the newly created photo collage art piece are transmitted through the movie to the viewer through skilful use of timing, visuals, narration and music whilst making the movie.
Susan was invited to Bosnia by Dr Sam Osmanagich, in June 2017, at which time she shot visuals of many of the monuments and surrounding areas of the complex of newly discovered pyramids in the Visoko valley, just outside Sarajevo. She returned to Bosnia again in 2018 and 2019, culminating in her making the first draft of her movie on the Bosnian pyramid complex, in May 2020. First Draft version of Susan's Bosnian movie
This is an artistic documentary containing 2 very prominent symbols, 'Crystal of Time' and 'Diamond Lens, Doorway to Infinity' that she's made from examining the Bosnian Pyramid Complex at all possible levels, which themselves contain the meaning of aspects of Universal Truth in their makeup. These symbols are thus embedded into the timeline of the movie, so that they may transmit what they contain to the viewer, upon watching it. Here, in the process of making this first draft of her movie on Bosnia, as well as in several, previous films Susan has made; 'Circle of Immortality' 'The Golden Bridge' and 'Crossing Bridges' the art form of 'Kaleidoscopic Filmmaking' is born. Now Susan will go through this first version, tidy up what's already there and polish it with its next layer of emanation.
'Susan's book, 'Visions of Bosnia' tells the story of how she was invited to Bosnia by Sam Osmanagich, the discoverer of the Bosnian Pyramids, and in order to find the layout of a movie about the place, created 2 photo collage art pieces that describe each facet of it within their very structure. These photos collage art pieces were then embedded into the timeline of the movie using the skillful means of filmmaking, visuals, music, narration and timing to achieve this.
Drops of Being
Firstly a film script will be written, based on the story told in ‘Drops of Being’ , which will subsequently be turned into a feature film.
New Photo Collage Art Piece, in relation to Movie on River Ganga
Susan is now starting the process of creating her 8th photo collage art piece, whose shape and internal make up will be embedded into both a comprehensive movie on the River Ganges, as well as segments of it into shorter clips that reflect different aspects of it through visuals of various places along the River.
Which symbol will emerge, which theme of photos, which undercurrent of wisdom will be exposed through each precise use of shapes, their colours and angles?
The journey Susan is about to take will uncover the deeper meaning, which she can then, using symbol, place into a photo collage art piece, and then embed that into various aspects of the timeline of the movie, so that transmission of those essential meanings may automatically occur to the person watching it. Just like Mother Ganga herself talking to you.
