Notes On Blindness
In 1983, after decades of steady deterioration, writer and theologian John Hull became totally blind. To help him make sense of the upheaval in his life, he began documenting his experiences on audiocassette. Over three years, he recorded in excess of sixteen hours of material—a unique testimony of loss, rebirth, and renewal, excavating his interior world of blindness. These original diary recordings form the basis of Notes on Blindness, a six-part interactive documentary using new forms of storytelling, gameplay mechanics, and virtual reality to explore his cognitive and emotional experience of blindness. It won the Storyscapes Award at Tribeca Film Festival and the Alternate Realities VR Award at Sheffield Doc/Fest.
