V is for Vision

| May 6, 2014

We often connect art and aesthetic experiences with vision, or use “vision” as a metaphor for describing the perspective which shapes those experiences. In this stunning documentary, Esref Armagan, a blind Turkish artist with a remarkable sense of kinesthetic “vision” challenges these conceptions, creating accurate depictions of color and linear perspective through touch and imagination. This video never fails to impress me with what the human mind and body are capable of, even when one key sense is absent.
