Finding the blind spot

2014

The blind spot project was started in 2014. It was motivated by the physical Phenomenon called “SCOTOMA” (blind spot) . All vertebrates lack photoreceptors cells in the location of the blind spot. The brain automatically fills this area with surrounding images. I tried to explore these minor perceptual lapses and it’s omni present-ness with a commonly used tool, as Google earth.

 

I am fascinated by the accessibility and ubiquity of the software and began exploring this representational method because of its own built in blind spot -where the camera itself occupies space and therefore no indexical data is collected in the sky area, at the apex of the image.
