White Out (2010)

No landmarks in sight.
Only the darkness of white
as the black thread in an embroidered world.
Are you ready to see nothing at all?
Then don’t forget to leave your own dimensions at the door
and become part of a white universe
time to relocate yourself…

In 2010 Naomi Kerkhove astonished with White Out, a black and white miniature world stitched together with a sewing-machine in which people, houses, trees and streets are brought to life in thread. With the help of an old surveillance camera and an unsettling soundscape, the amazing little town became the setting for an intriguing road movie being captured live in fornt of the audience. Dark, disorientating, but as beautiful as the night.
