Notes on Blindness is a short film by Peter Middleton and James Spinney. The film documents the life of a blind man called John Hull, and uses virtual reality and gameplay mechanics to recreate John’s cognitive and emotional memories. The genius behind the virtual reality component is French artist and art director Béatrice Lartigue. Lartigue is primarily known for her interactive installations and currently works in the interdisciplinary collaborative Lab212. She has won many awards, including the Google International Art Prize, Tribeca Film Festival Storyscapes Award, the Lumen Prize, as well as the Sundance Film Festival.
