Dialogue in the Dark
Traveling exhibit in which you experience daily life in complete darkness as a blind person does. You are led through the exhibit by a guide. How exciting would it be to experience our daily life from a totally different perspective? Dialogue in the Dark is an exciting journey of exploring daily environments & routines through the senses of touch, taste, smell and sound. With the help of white cane and guide you get a chance to explore the unseen, and learn to see in darkness.

As you travel through Dialogue in the Dark exhibition, an invisible landscape emerges, composed out of sounds, scents, wind and textures. In tours that can last upto 1.5 hours you explore a park, a city, embark on a boat ride and enjoy coffee & appetizers in a café.

Artists Who Lose Their Vision, Then See Clearly

Eight artists found new ways to see after learning they had macular degeneration. “Nothing to lose is a kind of new freedom,” says one of them.

Serena Solomon. NYTimes / Arts. June 19-20, 2018
A version of this article appears in print on June 20, 2018, on Page C1 of the New York edition with the headline: In and Out of Sight.

. . . .

"Mr. Hollerbach painted throughout every aspect of his vision loss caused by macular degeneration, a disease that affects 10 million Americans, often in their twilight years — typically depleting their central vision and leaving most legally blind, but with some remnant of sight.
Can they stay creative?"

strange use of the word "creative".
