Capturing Movement in Motion
Type of work: Audible experience using audio description
Size of the work: (ca. 4 min.)
Capturing Movement in Motion is an audible experience describing two images, one of which is blurry. This is how I see as a visually impaired person. The other is clear, which is how my vision changes depending on the lighting and the contrast in colours around me. The audible experience explores what it is like to be heavily reliant on contrast lighting magnification in order to create a clear image. The audible experience can be experienced while sitting down, standing up or moving around.
