‘Visual Snow’ Series, 2022
In the ‘Visual Snow’ series the artist edits the right side of the shot to share what she sees because of the ‘visual snow’ which in essence is seeing constant flickering static in front of the eyes.
The syndrome is rarely diagnosed and barely researched. Some question whether it even is real, since the eye is in perfect health with this condition. It might appear suddenly, reasons unclear, cure unavailable.
Artist lives through the loneliness and fear of the unknown future, grieving the suddenly changed eyesight that is so crucial for her as a photographer.
At the same time, she discovers how unique a human experience can be, using this mysterious eyesight problem and the unexpectedly dismissive reaction of society to her story as a metaphor for people being blind to an opinion that differs from their own, because it is too hard to imagine seeing with anyone else’s eyes.
