Localized Blindness

Single-channel video, 19 min 45 sec

Constructed in the form of an eye test/observational diagnosis, Localized Blindness is an autobiographical-fictional narrative that consists of personal archives, found materials, fiction, and literary essays. What is left after the passing of an individual? The video documents a dreadful, almost suffocating conversation between me - an individual whoexperienced consecutive passings of people; and another me - an observational being who witnessed the changes of my accompany; and the other voices - from books and personal encounters that echo the distance between the subject and the outsider.
