The Blind Spot project formulates approaches to create portraits of perception.

Photography is combined with techniques based on the scripture of the blind: with projections, photographic interventions and installations, words and alphabetical eyes are formed from Braille and incorporated into material and photographic reality. A clear separation of seeing and blindness is thus abolished, for both concepts form an amalgam that is by no means a paradox: the seeming contradiction is a rubbing and wavering emulsion, the presumed principle of the world. These visualizations portray the blind-shining-seeing, powerful perception that changes reality. At the same time the images create visual sculptures about the options and utopia of shapes, about the options and utopia of perception itself. 

About Anna Heydel

Anna Heydel – (*1982, Guayaquil/Ecuador) is a photo artist whose works are based on experimenting with photography. She mainly works on the project The Blind Spot, in which she combines visual elements with Braille, the scripture of the blind. These photographic studies enable (her) to examine the complex world of (visual) perception and to create new shapes that emerge from the emulsorial space around vision and blindness. After studying Political Sciences at the University of Marburg she worked as an Editor at the Frankfurter Rundschau, a german national newspaper, and as a project manager at the Fotografie Forum Frankfurt, organizing the Summer Academy. During this program she participated in numerous workshops with photographers, curators and theorists. At the same time she began to intensify her work as a freelance photo artist. After living and continuing her artistic practice on Sardinia/Italy for the last five years, she recently returned to Germany, where she lives and works nearby Bremen. [Official Website]
