-__Becoming the blind spot__ (2010) +
- +
-__Becoming the blind spot__ is a performance in which a figure presents a television test-card, animated on an ipod screen to become a spot on the retina. There is a double-broadcast: The first, listened to by the performer  +
-through earpieces; the second, the translation into a series of spoken questions, the voice acts as a speaker for the ipod and is distorted through a small speaker attached to the throat. It considers the trance state as blind spot and site of action. The test-card becomes a sort of holding page or voided space, a way to test a response.  +
