Tactile Images

The curators worked with Lighthouse for the Blind to produce several haptic artifacts for the exhibition - a tactile map, a Braille exhibition booklet and tactile renditions of several visual prints. These were bound together and made available onsite.

Screen captures of the design files of these objects can be found below.
