On 15th October, International Day of the White Stick for the Blind, Eva Fotiadi (PhD) talks on Greek national radio station ERA 1, about the The OtherAbilities artist initiative. Fotiadi discusses the group’s current project, ‘What Do I Hear?’, which involves the production of prototype tools for translating audible sound into vibrations. The short interview was given for a radio show, ‘I exercise my rights . . .’, which considers disabilities, civil rights, and how technology can contribute to attendant activist movements.
Eva’s curatorial research into inclusive exhibitions is supported by Caradt. She is exploring possibilities for making exhibitions accessible to sensory diverse audiences, using tools for sensory translation developed with the ‘What Do I Hear?’ team.
‘What Do I Hear?’ is a collaboration between The OtherAbilities (Amsterdam) and Vibra Fusion Lab (London, Ontario, Canada). It is supported by Mondriaan Fonds, Stimulerings Fonds Creatieve Industrie, and Ontario Research Council.
