Thirteen graduate students from the Digital Arts and New Media MFA Program (DANM) at UC Santa Cruz conclude two years of artistic study with BLIND SPOT. The artists' works explore performance, game play, electronic sculpture, repurposed technology, and collaborative research. 

“The title of the exhibition refers directly to the punctum caecum or blind spot,” said DANM show curator Dorothy Santos. “It is the area of the eye where photoreceptors do not exist. In order to see what is in our blind spot, we must shift and alternate our positioning or gaze. In a metaphorical sense, these artists create in a space that requires the viewer to move and shift for the work to be seen and experienced.”
