There are rifts that happen when we oscillate between memory and forgetting - moments in which lived history is being superimposed by other stories.
In these emotional moments of acceleration and deceleration of time there is space for actions, which in this radical way would never find their space in normal life.

blackout is a piece about these little displacements in our lives.
It is a piece about the connection between memory and forgetting and about tupperwares that function as containers for some of these stories.
