From the 22nd to the 28th of November, Caradt researcher Eva Fotiadi (PhD) with the collective of The OtherAbilities’s artistic research project titled, What Do I Hear?, will be exhibiting prototypes from this project at Bradwolff projects in Amsterdam. What Do I Hear? is a pilot research project that aims to develop ‘tools’ for the translation of artworks between the senses. These tools should be integrated in the architecture of spaces where works of art are presented -from the white to the black cube, concert spaces and so on. The current prototypes ‘translate’ audible sound to tactile experiences. enabling also hearing disabled audience members to enjoy sound through its tactile sensations.
The exhibition at Bradwolff projects is meant as a presentation of the work-in-progress, and will facilitate user tests of the current prototypes.
Eva is supported by Caradt for curatorial research in inclusive exhibitions. She is exploring possibilities of making exhibitions accessible to sensory diverse audiences by tools for sensory translation developed by the What Do I Hear? team.
What Do I Hear? is a collaboration The OtherAbilities (Amsterdam) and Vibra Fusion Lab (London, Ontario, Canada). It is supported by Mondriaan Fonds, Stimulerings Fonds Creatieve Industrie, Ontario Research Council.
