UNABLE TO SEE, LACKING SENSE OF SIGHT
A PARTICULAR POINT, PLACE OR POSITION
INVOLVING THE IMAGINATION, INVOKING EXPRESSION
A Blind Spot is implicit in every situation
A Blind Spot is implicit in every situation-
as American as Apple Pie,
as natural as the Human Condition.
It is the biases, impulses and habits that go unnoticed due to their innate nature.
These reactions and dispositions are often obvious to the outside world, yet transparently too close for internal recognition. This blind certainty can result in an imprisonment, a close-mindedness, so total that the prisoner doesn't even know he's locked up.
Much of art & personal expression is motivated by an eager demand to shatter these shackles.
Empower & inspire people to share themselves. REFLECTION, EXPRESSION, CONNECTION.
Blind Spot Creatives began as a teeny tiny seed in 2009. The professor stood at the front of the room, his curly hair bouncing around. As he fervently lectured on personality blind spots [the biases, impulses and habits that go unnoticed due to their innate nature], Alyssa was inspired to take a deeper look at herself. The external world was seemingly grim, empty and hollow.
Since then the concept hasn’t left the forefront of her mind.
In 2013, feeling disconnected and distant from her own life, Alyssa decided to make a change.
Exhausted, void and empty from going through the motions, she began reflecting deeply on what was important to her and what it meant to live a fulfilled life.
What you will find is raw journal entries, personal photographs, collected inspirations, scattered thoughts, unpredictable emotions and countless reminders that the grass is green right beneath our feet.
Blind Spot Creatives is reflective in nature and arises not out of luxury, rather necessity. By peeling away the masks and shaving off the layers, we begin to walk lighter and with more understanding in our hearts. The end result: an openness to connection, leading to a meaningful life.
It is through imagination and observation that we begin to experience the intrinsic beauty of existence, the intuitive essence of being, capturing the fleeting moments before they lapse.
