Vision is the only way we emotionally connect with art. But for the blind or partially sighted, this acts as a barrier. They rely on audio descriptions that are too literal and flat, preventing them to create a unique experience.
We realised sound evokes emotions and instinctive reactions, regardless of sight or not. Berlinishe Galerie introduces The Invisible Museum. An exhibition of famous paintings, except we showcased blank frames and only sound translations of the original artwork. The headphone acted as a human eye, where the sound captured an artist’s mood, and emotions depicted in the painting. Moreover, we created a Spotify playlist of more artists and their works, making art accessible to all.
The Invisible Museum garnered attention from the press across Thailand and increase the footsteps at the museum by 50%. We reimagined the way the blind could experience art while allowing them to give their own interpretation.
