"Museums in the Dark" shows my final project prototype for the 2013 Masters of Art in Communication Design show at Chelsea College of Art & Design. The project is a proof-of-concept to show how art could be adapted to accommodate those born blind.
There are approximately 1.87 million people living with visual impairment in the United Kingdom. Of these millions of individuals, 224,000 are fully blind.
The world of graphic design communication is traditionally visual, but designers today have the capability—and the moral responsibility—to communicate to those who cannot see.
My work uses commonplace technologies to provide a multisensory fine art experience that could be modified to accommodate those with low-vision and blindness.
I am exceptionally passionate about accessible design and the museum experience. I can only hope that one day my work will help to bring publicly available art to the masses.
