"In the white darkness³ is an interactive piece about memory. The work was
created by Reiner Strasser in collaboration with M.D. Coverley (Marjorie
Coverley Luesebrink) over a period of 9 months in 2003/04.
It assimilates and reflects the experience with patients fallen ill with
Alzheimer's or Parkinson's diseases, showing the fragility and fluidity of
memory from a subjective point of view.
“It was not the erasure that mattered so much as the act of trying to
recover what we no longer can identify.³ (M.D. Coverley)
>From the pulsing dots of the background-interface different events can be
started, played (and combined). In this process the experience of
remembering and loss of memory can be re-created in the appearance and
disappearance of words, pictures, animations and sounds. Memories (readable
with a general metaphorical meaning) are unveiled and veiled in transition
at the same time, arranged by or using your own memory.
