Vantablack is the darkest black


Vantablack is the darkest black is a sound-installation inspirerd by the newly discovered colour vantablack. This substance functions like a black hole: it absorbs all the light that it’s exposed to. This way vantablack seems non-tangible. By not reflecting it refuses to interact with us.

In a world overflowing by visual and auditive stimulants, a white cube positioned in a black box functions as a kind of Kaäba for the seekers of quietness. Vantablack is the darkest black leaves us in the dark, offering space for despair, association and imagination.
