‘Whiteout’ is a term used to describe meteorological phenomena;
it defines a weather condition in which visibility is severely restricted by snow or sand.
In this condition, the whole horizon turns white and cannot be distinguished, making difficult to measure the display direction and distance.
Standing on a plain under this whiteout condition, it feels like being thrown into a white silence.
As such, the term leads to the phenomenon caused by weather conditions,
but this editorial aims to express the meaning from the feeling of approaching the state itself.
We sometimes feel so absorbed in something that we can't see or hear anything other than the object of concentration for a moment.
Everything else turns black and white - out of touch - just like immersing oneself in a hot fire that burns momentarily,
finally left as the remaining ash. As whole,
this work expresses a strong sense of silence enveloping like a burning fire as soon as being deeply immersed into something,
and an emptiness like the debris left behind that.
