How We See

Representing visual impairment

This one year study uses inclusive design to engage with both sighted and low vision communities to co-create design outputs that support public engagement with the topic of vision loss. 

There is a general misunderstanding in the sighted community around the topic of sight loss and visual impairment. The project will look to de-stigmatise and demystify the visual impairment (VI) spectrum, and shift perception of VI as equating to total sensory loss. This aims to empower the public in their understanding, and provide the VI community with some relief from managing the expectations of others. Through addressing the mystery that surrounds the spectrum of VI, it is intended to create more inclusive experiences together.
