I have had the good fortune to be featured on Eco: On Blindness and the Arts, Simon Hayhoe’s project to bridge academia and the arts around the issue of blindness. The site features a Flash-based image gallery featuring blind artists and related exhibits , projects and institutions. [Because it is Flash-based, I can't link directly to my gallery and it is not very accessible.]
ECO was founded as an on-line knowledge base in 2006, in order to provide research resources, information and a gallery about blindness in the arts. It has now expanded, however, to include information about blindness in information technology and computing as well. Its aim is to introduce these subjects as fields of study.
ECO is a webpage for educators and practitioners of the arts or information technology, or simply people who have an intellectual interest in touch arts, computer programming, IT, access or disability. It is an electronic resource to introduce you to the ideas behind this topic. It is also the beginnings of an on-line library on this subject.
The site offers both links to useful resources and a ton of related academic articles.
Thanks, Simon!If you find this post useful or interesting, please consider buying me a cup of coffee.
