Jasmine Targett awarded Australia Council Grant
In 2013 I was awarded a New Work grant for a two year project that will push my practice beyond limitations and to new heights (literally in this case!)
Brief: ‘Blind Spot’ is a Techno-romantic craft installation aiming to explore the blind spot in perception surrounding nature and existence....
‘In every observation there is a blind spot, the spot on the retina where the optical nerve is connected making the eye blind on that very spot, all one can do is try to move these blind spots, in an effort to catch a glimpse of the invisible’- Krogh Jensen
The work will focus on reinterpreting traditional craft materials and techniques, working with new technologies to find an innovative way to map the Ozone Hole.
Blind Spot is a continuation of my previous body of work Life Support Systems.
