Dialogue in the Dark - London

  • Huseyin Gunduzler

In Dialogue in the Dark exhibition visitors are led by blind guides in small groups through a specially constructed and totally darkened exhibition – where sounds, wind, temperatures and textures convey the characteristics of daily environments such as a park, a city or a bar. In the dark, daily routines become a new experience. A reversal of roles are created: sighted people are torn out of their familiar environments, losing the sense they rely on most - their sight. Blind people guide them, provide them with security and a sense of orientation - transmitting a world without pictures.
