about

“… and only then can passer-bys catch a glimpse of what lies at the bottom of these holes, where night lives during the day.”
– E. Zola, Thérèse Raquin


What if darkness is not the absence of light, but rather a creeping imperceptible matter that, like air, swirls around us, filling up every last space in the evening until sunlight is blocked and we can no longer see our surroundings? What if night was not the absence of daylight, but instead a black mist that blocks light, the way water does at the bottom of the ocean? And if sounds are forced to travel through this thick blackness, does it modify the way my recording device perceives them?
Then in the morning, where would the darkness go? To where would it creep back and hide during daytime? I would guess that darkness hides in caves, tunnels, basements, air vents, thick forests or underground parking lots- therefore these are the places I recorded the source material for „Darkness in Daylight“. – Why? – Well if we cannot see darkness, then maybe we can hear it.
