Blindsight is a conceptual / documentary multimedia piece that combines audio, video and still photography to tell the story of Dennis, 48, who is gradually losing his sight. The piece attempts to convey the emotion involved in coming to grips with a life-changing disability and to give the viewer a sense of visual impairment through the use of abstract video and still images.
