Blind Spot by Nicole Chochrek (2024)


Blind Spot by Nicole Chochrek

BLINDSPOT explores visual and optical illusions as metaphors for how dyslexics can process text. Illusions allow us to visualize different interpretations of information. As a dyslexic, my work reflects difficulties in processing text by expanding the visual possibilities of language. This work celebrates the dyslexic strengths of pattern recognition and spatial awareness to extend perspectives and challenge ideas of correctness.

Nicole Chochrek received a Masters of Fine Arts from the University at Buffalo in 2022. She received a bachelors in Geography and Environmental Science from the University of North Texas in 2015.
