An exhibition by some of the world’s most accomplished blind photographers, Sight Unseen, explores how the blind can see in ways the sighted cannot. The show uses new 3-D tactile imaging technology based on research into neuroplasticity, allowing people with vision loss to view art with their fingertips. “When we imagine things, we exist,” says artist Evgen Bavcar, who lost his sight as a child in Slovenia after an accident with a mine detonator.
