Not Blacking Out, Just Turning The Lights Off is a video that examines the role of intimacy in relation to desire and physical proximity. Presenting images and sounds that are surrogates for the liquidity or porosity of the body, of being inside and outside, Not Blacking Out slips between the sensual image and its abstraction.” – Isla Leaver-Yap
