Due to lots of positive reactions 'Flight' can be seen throughout 2014.

In the soaring, soberly furnished hidden church (1639) of the Mennonite congregation on the Singel in Amsterdam a book lies open on the pulpit. Pages flutter as if playfully caught up by the wind to be suspended frozen in the air.
Time seems to stand still.

In de hoge sober ingerichte schuilkerk (1639) van de doopsgezinde gemeente aan het Singel in Amsterdam ligt een opengeslagen boek op de kansel. Bladzijden dwarrelen op alsof de wind ermee speelt, hangen bevroren in de lucht.
De tijd lijkt stil te staan.
