Blind Spots | 2005

video, 5 min.

The Blind Spot is a point on our retina where processes of neurons collect together and pass through the photoreceptor sheet as a bundle to form the optic nerve that transmits information from the eye to the brain. At this spot we don't have vision. This results in “blindness” which most of the time is compensated for by the brain. The brain will fill in the gap by “making-up” vision, which can result in seeing things that are not really there, i.e an assumed reality.
