The Eye of Mind

 Close Your Eyes and Open Your Mind

In the metropolitans we live in, visual impaired people are facing great challenges when they travel around which inspired my research on the way-finding systems in urban space and after worked with a group of visual impaired people based in Beijing , a series of design approaches emerged.

To demonstrate the research finding and test the design attempts, a travel experience of a visual impaired people in public space was recreated. The experiencer will get an eye mask and experience in complete darkness. By using the digital camera got at the entrance, the experiencer could take a picture during the experience when they feel something special and print it out as a postcard upon finishing the experience with embossed identity design as a unique souvenir of themselves.
