This piece shows a color grid, masked to and originally projected on to the industrial-style window at THE THING’s office in the Starrett Lehigh Building in Chelsea, NYC, consisting of 80 window panes. It shows scenes compiled from eight feature films that were crudely pixilated to exactly match the grid of the 16 x 5 window panes (each representing one pixel). In this low resolution of moving images the viewer can still recognize movements and objects. The original sound of the scenes is audible. All selected excerpts deal with blindness and partial dysfunctions of seeing. Protagonists are either blind or in the state of regaining sight -- describing objects that they cannot clearly recognize. Others talk about a hallucinatory experience.
