Why am I making this?
- Non-faces is a short documentary on the topics of psychogeography and environmental psychology from the point of view of people with eye defects (Myopia specifically)
- It’s a self-narrative documentary that follows how the subject’s (myself) interactions with her environment have changed and morphed as her eyesight got worse
- It will explore society’s take on people with correctable eye defects and what “wearing glasses” represents
- It will also explore the relationship between anxiety and social mental stress as a result of overstimulation
- It will explore the relationship between reduced visual acuity as a tool of sensory deprivation and mental escape for loud visual cues and large crowds and overstimulation
- Lastly, it will explore the relationship between sensory deprivation as a treatment for anxiety, depression and social neuroticism
- Eye defects like Myopia, are for the most part passive disabilities in that society doesn’t necessarily regard people who have this defect as disadvantaged. This can be true in many cases, however, people with eye defects see the world very differently and each person has a very unique experience as they silently and slowly notice that they can’t see things and explore their environment as is without extra help.
- By sharing my point of view on a possible “positive” side-effect of this disability, I hope to open up the conversation to sufferers to internally explore and perhaps openly discuss their experiences.
- Many people with Myopia have never thought so deeply about what life would be like if they had no access to their glasses or contacts. This documentary will hopefully change that and spark a conversation that is, at the very least, engaging and enjoyable and at most, relevant to the larger discussion of psychogeography.
