Absence is Present: MayJuneJuly
Phyllis Baldino, 2011
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)
