In Whiteout the words are floating like natural objects in a field of white. Disconnected. Nouns without sentences. A flurry of bits of letters surrounds them as in a snowstorm. It is impossible to capture a landscape in these words. Words are awkward substitutes for nature. Still, a textual landscape comes to life through words. Words are the natural objects of another kind of world. The textimages in this book were made by applying whiteout to definitions from the Glossary of Metereology. The definitions were found by following words printed darker in the definition of “whiteout”, and in the next level of definitions coming from that.
