Eyelid and Dragon Boy by Elisabeth Molin

Eyelid and Dragon Boy by Elisabeth Molin

“Eyelid and Dragon Boy” is inspired by an encounter with a person who is 90% blind. This meeting made me reflect and write about the nature of vision today, how it is considered the primary sense and how technology forefronts vision to other senses. The writing draws parallels between the body and the screen, between the camera as device for recording reality and its failure to do so. The video is recorded in Spain where I met the character and is partly shot through his monocular – a device that he uses for navigating.
