ICE ON MY EYES

May 5th, 2013 by Rebecca

ICE ON MY EYES is an audiovisual installation for the blind and the not- so- blind in which text, image and sound play a game of attraction and repulsion. The visual, the auditory and the tactile communicate with each other. ICE ON MY EYES is not only the result of artistic research and a multifaceted collaboration, it also raises questions on how to make art accessible to people with visual disabilities. In a visually-oriented society, the blind can show the not-so-blind new possibilities on how to perceive our surrounding reality.

Opening on May the 24th until June the 2nd 2013 @ Centre of Contemporary Art Netwerk Aalst (Belgium). more info here
