Windows of the Soul is an art exhibition seeking to convey the visual experiences of those living with sight impairment. A team of around 20 volunteers has collaborated to produce this physical and online exhibition to initiate public engagement and start conversations about the realities of living with sight loss. Within the group are artists with sight-impairment, who have produced work based on their visual perspective. Team members have also collaboratively developed art with one of the founding artists through an iterative process of design and feedback. The exhibition includes Braille art, traditional paintings, print work, tactile work, icons, sound art, as well as animations depicting visual hallucinations.
The flagship exhibition will be at The Lumen Church in Tavistock Place as part of Bloomsbury Festival 2021. There is also a speakers symposium on Friday 22nd October 6-8pm.
Further information about the project is available on the Bloomsbury Science Festival website.
