When experiencing the art, what suggestion is given to those who can see?
Art tends to be, by its very nature, a visual medium. A display of colour and light, texture and contrast.

Sighted visitors are encouraged to cover their eyes, so they too can experience the exhibition in a new way. It’s been described as a first experiment, art for everyone, that triggers all the senses.
