In an effort to explore the sensory experience of being without sight, Peter Middleton and James Spinney have dramatized through video an audio diary recording of James Hull, a man gone blind. The recoding, taken just four months into his downturn speaks of one’s state of consciousness when experiencing elements that give the world depth — in this case rain. The video, a part of the Memory Marathon at the Serpentine Gallery, London, helps us understand this state of mind through portraying the common experience of rainfall within the comfort of one’s home in order to make aware the space, depth and detail of a room. The short is one of 60 artistic representations of luminaries worldwide in the week-long marathon devoted to ‘remembrance.’
