Vardø. The White
Entry for the Europan 10 International Competition Norway with TondoAtelier (Alejandra Climent Monsalve, Federico Perugini, Valentina Signore).
Nature had revealed many tricks wherewith she convinced men of their finiteness. Nor the ceaseless flow of the tides, nor the fury of the storm, nor the shock of the earthquakes, nor the long roll of heaven's artillery, were as tremendous and stupefying as the passive phase of the White silence. There, the movement ceased, the sky cleared, the heavens were brass, the slightest whisper seemed sacrilege and man became timid, affrighted at the sound of his own voice. They were the sole speck of life journeying across the ghostly wastes of a dead world. They trembled at their audacity, realizing that theirs was a maggot's life, nothing more.
