Accessible art for visually impaired peoplein Japan
January 25, 2018
The accessibility in art for people with visual impairments is slowly making progress in Japan.
The aim is to introduce art like paintings in the lives of people who can only feel it with their hands and not see it.
This can be achieved through various methods and techniques such as the use of audio descriptions, tactile methods and description by humans.
An exhibition of accessible art was held at the National Art Center in Tokyo's Roppongi district. The art displayed was tactile and there were conversations arranged about the various art displays.
Blind visitors can experience a deeper understanding of what the artists wanted to portray in their work. They were able to touch and feel the art and also learn from the discussions and conversations around them.
Such events are now held frequently and help make art an experience in the lives of people with visual impairments.
There are other techniques also that are now being used across the world to make art accessible for Blind, such as, 3-D printing, adding Braille into visual art, extra-textured paintings, and tactile art and tactile tours customized for the blind.
