The Heart of the Andes

The Young American Boy runs away from home-town bullies, and blocks their threats out by immersing himself in coffee table art books. Fredric Edwin Church unveils his 1859 masterpiece “The Heart of the Andes” and invites viewers to look at it through opera glasses. What you block out makes what you see more intense. Narrated by a blind man who sees more than most, as a result of having everything blocked out.

Everyday Uses for Sight is a loose collection of puppet pieces being made out of order, that examines the personal, emotional, political intellectual and sociological ramifications of the sense of sight: How and why we see, do not see, or choose not to see the world around us. The Heart of the Andes is #7 in the series.
