Constructed in the form of an eye test/observational diagnosis, Localized Blindness is a semi-autobiographical video that documents several internal monologues: What is left after the passing of an individual? It's between me - an individual who witnessed consecutive passings; another me - an observational being who observed the changes of my accompany and the surrounding; and the other voices, all that echo the distance between the subject and the outsider.

《局部失明》是對我來說很重要的人離開的時候,因為有很長一段時間沒辦法處理自己的情緒及溝通的障礙,所以做了這個作品,而這部作品對我來說是一個溝通的出口。「我不停地在想,一個陌生人,怎樣能跟我一起共同進入一個平等的空間,這個作品我不想要交代一個東西給你,我想要和觀眾一起共同度過一個時間」— 忻慧妍
