Blacker Than Any Blindness takes an allegorical approach to reflect on grief and loss all too familiar companions, here envisaged in stark imagery presented through moving image and large-scale photographic work. Through layering images and introducing ambient sound, the work is a mediation on the disorientation and turmoil of loss.1
