Looking at Disability through Creative Senses

"<thisAbility vs. Disability> is an international electronic art exhibition looking upon themes of disability through creative transition of the senses. You can experience and enjoy ten fascinating interactive electronic artworks, including: a painting seen through your hand by the touch of the wind, a digital musical instrument played by facial gestures, a robot responding to your voice, a table transmitting your hand's touch into light, a block transforming Braille into sound, a harmonic bell playing according to your heartbeat, and so on. We are very pleased to invite you to experience this unique electronic art show."

DESIGNABILITIES

"The DESIGNABILITIES blog is part of the project 'Speechless' managed by Tom Bieling and supervised by Prof. Dr. Gesche Joost, at the Design Research Lab of Deutsche Telekom Laboratories.

DESIGNABILITIES is meant to be an exchange platform, not only for the project members or partners, but also for anybody who is interested in the topic likes to share knowledge in this research field.

We like to collect, document and discuss inspiring projects, products, concepts and theories within the range of design, technology, art, architecture, philosophy and pop culture. This includes also the discussion on the progress of our own research work....

It might be links to interesting projects, publications, products or services. It might be book reviews, announcements of interesting events (e.g. conferences, lectures, presentations, releases) or just questions, hypotheses or comments in general."

(Tom Bieling)

Braille In Stainless Steel: Mute Marker Or Communication Interface

"The stainless steel of this sculpture seems to glow with an inner light. The magnified Braille text suggests a message, but the artist chooses to deny us access, raising issues of communication in the contemporary world, and the difficult interface between the disabled and the rest of the community."
(Wellington Sculpture Trust, Aotearoa New Zealand)

[The sculpture was created by Anton Parsons as a translation of a poem by blind writer / lecturer Peter Beatson.]
