Artist Statement

Every human eye has a substantial blind spot where the optic nerve connects to the retina. The brain continuously fills in our blind spots by deciphering surrounding visual information. In the current climate of spin, misinformation and sensory bombardment, our cultural blind spots are growing exponentially.

How do we fill in the gaps with pertinent, meaningful information?

What sources do we trust?

How do we process issues as monumental as sustainability and global warming?

—Monica Mahoney
