Quantcast
Blaffer Art Museum

The May 2013 Window into Houston opening features Los Angeles-based artist Clarissa Tossin. For Blind Spot, Tossin photographed primarily in the Third Ward to capture the utilitarian yet creative ways residents cover their windows with layer upon layer of foil, bolstered by tape and plastic. Printed as high-quality digital images on vinyl and hung as blinds in the historic storefront windows at 110 Milam St., Blind Spot effectively transposes locations by substituting one kind of window treatment for another, trading windows decorated of necessity for the photograph as art object and insisting that we see the city anew by taking the time to consider the relationship between these functions.
