Blindspot is a project that considers how memory, migration and movement affect perception. It began with the research of an extinct train line in Lebanon which I retraced in July 2011 photographing and filming the remnants of stations and landscape; Using the collected material, I created a series of works -multiple and mediated views- as a means of seeing the history of the trip and place; and examined the process of recalling a journey from both a physical and temporal distance.
