| Overview |
This zine presents visually impaired children’s interpretation of Helen Keller’s Three Days to See. Supported by a teacher working at a school for the blind, this project attempts to help the community without vision problems better understand the other reality.
Materials: kraft paper, translucent vellum paper
While most of the kids created their braille art, some with partial vision loss drew with pen. I covered those pieces with translucent vellum paper, as I came to know from my interview that there is no distinct color in the blind’s universe, and all they can sense is a cloud of blurs.
The physical collection inspired me to create a digital component, an audiobook, to complete this project, which gave birth to the booklet idea for a broader readership.
