Marc Dillon of the Unseen Art Project is trying to make art more accessible to the blind with 3D printing technology. The Helsinki-based designer is at the helm of the initiative, which aims to create 3D printed replicas of classic paintings so that the blind and visually impaired can derive appreciation from touching and feeling them.
Currently leading an Indiegogo campaign, Dillon says, “There are many people in the world who have heard of classical artworks their whole lives but are unable to see them,” and that, “It would be a revolution to get blind people going to art galleries, people hate them because there is nothing there to touch!”
