Portraits for the Visually Impaired

In the ongoing project Portraits for the Visually Impaired, I am creating 3D sculptures or reliefs with 3D printing technology for people who are visually impaired. In this photographic installation two prints are displayed of the same portrait, a 3D print and a black and white print. The black and white prints are displayed on the wall and the 3D prints are displayed on a pedestal for every visitor to touch and feel. Together both portraits build a connection between the visually impaired and sighted visitor. This project and technology gives access to 2D images to the visually impaired community.
