Blindsided illustrated the feeling of being blindsided (from the receiver’s perspective) during the opening night of the Sense of Place exhibition. Live plants were placed on the upper tier of a paper structure and watered. Over the course of three hours, the plants slowly sank through the first tier and fell to the second tier. Five of the plants fell at a breakneck speed from the first tier, breaking through the second tier and landed brutally in the dirt below. The others landed on second tier and repeated process of slowly sinking through the waterlogged paper before dropping softly to the dirt.
