"Tactile Photography"
by sabine7 / September 25, 2005


James Patten and Mariliana Arvelo bring us Tactile Photography, a series of photographic prints laser etched onto maple, an effect which produces a photographic relief. Viewers are encouraged to touch the art, and as time goes on, the surface of the wood becomes worn. This is truly interactive art as the public’s touch becomes incorporated into the works. The series was part of a project involving the deaf-blind community and the artists observe with fascination the different ways the pieces are experienced by sighted, blind and deaf-blind participants. Finally – art that begs to be touched!
