The video tries to reveal electromagnetic light sparks that are set off during the swift manipulation and friction of a woolen blanket in a dark space. The sound of this static electricity is experienced when watching the Static Sound video (2004). A first experiment has been made in a mountainous area at a temperature of -35°C. Exactly ten years later, Edith Dekyndt decided to repeat the experiment under similar meteorological conditions, at a temperature of -15°C, in the Svalbard Archipelago in the Arctic ocean.
