The video animation Blackout is a short sequence of over 700 drawings, collages, frames and images produced and manipulated by the artist through obsessively repeating a few basic actions, such as folding, copying, cutting, mirroring. The resulting animation refrains from creating any narrative, becoming almost abstract, highlighting a new direction for Mein. The high voltage wires and cables work here as central elements, both directly and, by being sliced out and subtracted from the image, allowing rapid visions of an imaginary sky to appear.
