BLIND FIELD

 
 

Blind Field (in process) is a series of images and performative actions that delves into connections between vision as mediated through lens-based technology and the minds-eye. Roland Barthes described the blind field as the space where the photographer’s intention and the viewer’s attention (as informed by their historical/sociological/personal experience) meet. The lens hungers to touch but from a distance and the mind seeks symbolic meaning. This body of work draws the viewer in by offering a magnifying loupe to view abstract images of windows, screens, and other symbolic veils. Time lapse images of knots being tied (or untied) are metaphorical nods to the process of making connections between what we see and what is comprehended.
