Wherever you next see braille I know that you will see it with ‘new eyes’

Those who are blind have depended on braille to be their eyes and provide them with written communication since it was invented in 1824 by Louis Braille.

As well as print media, these small raised dots can be found in many public spaces such as elevators, bank machines, currency and even on the labels of wine bottles providing the blind with vital information that opens up the world for them on a daily basis.
However, people who have perfect vision suddenly become ‘blind’ when looking at braille because we pay no attention to it as we do not need it. We are blind to its meaning. What we do see (if we look) are the wonderful patterns created by the letters and words that the dots depict.

For the sighted, braille is visual art and its patterns are quite beautiful. In this exhibition of braille, starting with the alphabet, I want to share that simple beauty with you and hope that when you look at these images you find them both meditative and mesmerizing. Wherever you next see braille I know that you will see it with ‘new eyes’.
