I fell through the waterfall by flash and cut the surface with living flow line.
So Dipper bird, which appeared for a moment to the end of the walking  through the Javoří creek in the Giant mountains, told me.

It was a moment so full of elusive image of beauty and bewitching words.

Thus, images are born, which are not only a message, which anyone should be excited about. They are fragments of a living presence.

Water is a significant phenomenon in Milos Šejn's work. Appears almost everywhere. Even the Sun Mountain was built above the stream flowing through it. In MUO / OLOMOUC MUSEUM OF ART – Theatre of Music you can see it on the long white wall in the hall (drawing, writing, painting), water framed and hanging, and a video stream flowing in the foyer.

Right from the water spring
The body of waters bites downwardly there
Where it roots in the deepest subsoil and
Turns its multiple eyes upward
Between grass and trees into the light
From where it was born.
Its being is becoming a shape
And its limbs growing through soil
In the endless folds
Always open embrace for seeing, speaking,
Finger printings and tracks of incoming
For touches the mouth of all beings
On the water surface.
We are also bodies of water
Seemingly break away from this immensity.

An … extensive set of realizations in landscape is represented by various types of actions, characterized by a distinctive mutability over the course of time. These activities and happenings react in some way upon the environment, either with the help of other materials, or merely by the physical presence of the actor. A substantial group of these works deal with the themes of travelling and eventually, wandering. Both of these themes were already being explored and documented by Miloš Šejn in the second half of the 60's, in his early works… Walking, with its motor characteristics, is the most elementary activity of a body possible in nature – it can be organized "from somewhere to somewhere", and we can understand this demarcation as a spatial sculpture sui generis. Wandering carries other meanings, mainly the aspect of its unintentional ness, but also the quality of the actor’s existential jeopardy, which is to say the solitary actor. That can be encompassed in a walk under extreme conditions and through difficult terrain…
