Seine Kongruangkit— Art Director

 

THE INVISIBLE MUSEUM

“The invisible Museum” begins with the question “How do blind people appreciate art?” Therefore, I created a sound for famous paintings. I look at each painting and translate the meaning and the visual of it to sound. This installation that invites people to explore art in a way that the visually impaired can equally understand, through the sense of hearing. Sound can alter visual, therefore the audience will manage to squeeze an amazing amount of information from each artwork while imagine what the original painting really looks like by listening to the sound of it. Each side of the headphones will act as human eyes – your left ear will hear what’s on the left side of the frame and your right ear will do vice versa. The audiences’ imagination can be different depending on one’s experience and interpretation.
