We provide assistance in reaching the building from its immediate vicinity.
We invite people with visual impairment as well as sighted people to experience contemporary art through sound, touch and other extra-visual senses. During the three-year programme called Spectrum of Light, we will together examine the extra-visual properties of successive colours in the visible light spectrum. We start with orange – the colour of relationships, creativity and expression!
Sounds affect our mood. They can calm us down or stimulate. They resonate with emotions, so we can describe sounds using words such as sadness, joy, peace. Is it the same with shapes? Can we assign a shape to a sound? A line, square, wave, circle?
The workshop will start with an attempt to capture a sound, after which we will create a tactile form to find out how sounds can be translated into shapes. Then, sensitised to careful listening, we will work in tandems – we will use instruments to perform an action resembling a colourful sound composition. The conductor and the musician will then stage the final mini-concert in the interactive space filled with the orange colour, which is the setting of Exposure to Colour.
