A Thing Among Things

Giovanni Giaretta
Italy, Netherlands 2015 / 7’

The recollections of a blind person accompanied by a close-up image of minerals. The indistinct and blurred image is a reflection of what it is like to gradually lose one’s sight. It becomes more and more difficult to discern shapes, figures, and objects. Everything starts to blend together, and only changes in color signal a change in the field of vision.
