The blind's art beyond sight
The opening ceremony of "Art Beyond Sight - Non Visual Photography"
exhibition was held on Monday in Beijing, displaying over 30 photos

in China, the one-week exhibition provides an opportunity for those
without or only limited sight to share their experiences with the seeing
Art Preview: Blind Data -- Please Do Touch @ St Leonard's Church
How does a blind person go about experiencing the intricate detail of
the Mona Lisa or the majesty of the ceiling of the Sistine chapel? This
was the question that inspired the artistic duo known as Scratchadelia
to create a show filled with art that visitors will never see.
Instead their latest exhibition will involve leading both blind and
sighted, but blindfolded, visitors on a guided tour of their artworks,
which can only be experienced by touch. Each piece is a tribute to a
famous work of art but with only one sense to work with, and imagination
left to fill in the rest, it will be interesting to see the different
takes of visitors on each work.
