Divine Futurism

Image: Goda Palekaitė, 2019

I have seen palaces in heaven that were so splendid as to be beyond description. Their upper stories shone as though they were made of pure gold, and their lower ones as though they were made of precious gems. It was the same inside. The rooms were graced with such lovely adornments that neither words nor the arts and sciences are adequate to describe them. The architecture of heaven is like this, so that you might call it the very essence of the art — and small wonder, since the art itself does come to us from heaven.


Heaven and Hell, Emanuel Swedenborg*, 1758
