Aletheia is the introductory tape to the blindness series, investigating blindness and its metaphors. This tape indexes six categories under examination:
1) Cosmetic surgery; 2) Sexuality - fear & fantasy of blindness, the eye and women and AIDS; 3) Technology; 4) Language; 5) Hysterical blindness; 6) Actual Blindness; and an epilogue will complete the series. Because this is a series about vision, seeing and the eye, it is the artist's intention to create a 3form of presentation which will reflect and further elucidate the issues to be discussed and explored; this entails heavy experimentation of not only video techniques, but of all areas relevent to the viewing plane of media works.
