Relentless blur surrounds,
Leaving questions of reality.
Frustrations recurrently surface,
While inescapable doubts taunt.
The void becomes apparent,
Presence and absence are rivals.

Through performance,
Loss becomes tangible.

Intangible, examines the toll loss has on our psyche. Our experience of reality exists largely on our minds ability to process visual information. However, when sight is restricted, doubt seeps in causing a void of tangible information. This leads to the panic, fright, isolation, and lack of identity that is attached to emotions. These experiences reoccur in a variety of personal and shared perspectives.
Fragments often become the frameworks for what is perceptible. This conversation demands the concrete. It presents a deafening white space, full of memories, experiences, and truths. Continued deterioration stimulates personal recollections. The void defines the boundaries of perception and subconsciously shapes reality.

Continued research

As i continue to explore my conceptual work based from my experiences with poor vision, I have covered a number of artists. From historic artists such as Picasso and his Blue Period to contemporary artists such as Uta Barth.

But one that particularly stands out to me is the work of Pete Exkert...

Twenty-seven years ago, Pete Eckert was fast on his way to a career in architecture when he received the heart-breaking diagnosis for Retinitis Pigmentosa, a degenerative eye disease that often, and quickly, leads to blindness. Ironically, it was also during this time that he discovered his mother's old camera. Almost immediately, he felt compelled to dedicate himself to this intensely visual medium despite his devastating diagnosis. He quickly enrolled in art school and, within the limited time he still had his vision, gathered as much knowledge of the craft as possible. While he soon lost the ability to see, he has also since become an award-winning photographer. “I view my work during the event of taking the shot in my mind’s eye,” he says. “I 'see' each shot very clearly, only I use sound, touch, and memory.” Eckert takes his photos mostly at night, when his hometown of Sacramento is quiet and empty, and he can move around more easily. Although they clearly depict the isolation from the world of those who see, Eckert considers his highly stylized "light paintings" to be a bridge between the world of the blind and the sighted. Being around such a confident and creative individual, you often forget that, as Eckert puts it, he is “only a tourist in the sighted world.”
