Writer John Hull went blind in the summer of 1983. To cope with the change in his life, he began recording audio diaries of his experience. Notes on Blindness: Into Darkness is built on these recordings. It is a visual and auditory experience about the inner world of blindness, using a dynamic visual world that responds to attention to give viewers a sense of how Hull feels the world through sound and concentration.
