The video triptych MayJuneJuly continues Phyllis Baldino's interest in perception and ways of seeing. Specifically, the work attempts to illustrate the blind spot Baldino recently developed as the result of a mini-stroke during open heart surgery.

Images of painter Claude Monet’s famous gardens in Giverny are obscured by a sometime subtle, sometimes irritating, “blind spot,” which the artist created based on her personal vision. (27 mins., video)
