Description

Designer's statement: Every space with security cameras has its blind spot. Our eyes are the cameras that constantly monitor reality. Where is the blind spot of our consciousness? The unseen is ourselves. BlindSpot is an interactive installation that points out the limitation of vision and perception. I believe the reality in which we live is beyond what we observe by our eyes. Depth, for instance, is something we see and don't see. We think of daily objects as a relationship to it instead of the object itself. I’m attempting to perceive the world not only based on our limited recognition from sight but also reason about the content beyond the vision. In this journey, I hope the participants will gain a new insight of their perception and how they perceive the reality in an environment where they are surrounded by multi-duplications of themselves from the front and the back.
