The Whiteout

Share on Facebookshare on TumblrTweet about this on Twitter

In Iceland I experienced for the first time the natural phenomena known as the 'whiteout'. This is suddenly being in the middle of a snow storm, unable to see anything around you. There are no reference points at all, the individual is left with distorted orientation and it just feels as if everything around you disappears. Only for a few minutes you are in the middle of a big void.

This project doesn’t aim to show a geographical location, but uses the place, the nature and the characters to represent an internal journey about the process of forgetting, the fear of letting go and the dealing with returning and vanishing memories that would just burst in unexpectedly. This is the waiting, the experiencing and the returning from a storm. At the end everything was and still is there. I could, after the storm had passed, see the horizon again.
