The Braille Box

The Braille Box (documentation) from Jessica Tyrrell on Vimeo.

The Braille Box is an interactive, audience-driven installation that uses blindness both as metaphor and as a documented experience to explore questions of cognition, meaning and perception in terms of the sensed world and the world built from language. The work uses a touch-driven Braille interface to trigger immersive audio and video to surround the gallery visitor in the contradictions and poetics inherent in the meaning of vision and its absence.

The Braille Box has been exhibited at This is Not Art Festival in Newcastle (2007), Don’t Look Gallery (2007) and Chalkhorse Gallery (2008) in Sydney.
