Beyond the Braille

A double spread collage, part of a visual essay that supports the written essay "Design Responsibility: Seeing Beyond the Braille" discussing the use of enlarged braille as a design element.

The scanned collage consists of eleven blind or visually impaired people who have been shaped but not defined by their disability. Braille expressing the phrase “Beyond the Braille” can be seen as enlarged white cut-outs among the images of people, a visual metaphor suggesting that braille is only a small fragment of what represents the diverse blind community.
