Making Sense: Exploring Altered Perception Through ‘Notes on Blindness’

Explore how we sense, and make sense of, the world at this unique event hosted by University of Glasgow's School of Culture & Creative Arts!

Making Sense: Exploring Altered Perception Through ‘Notes on Blindness’

About Making Sense: Exploring Altered Perception Through ‘Notes on Blindness’

What can sensory loss tell us about how we perceive ourselves and the world around us? How can the interaction between art and technology help us see differently?

Based on the audio diaries of the theologist John Hull, ‘Notes on Blindness’ (2016, Middleton & Spinney) charts one man’s experience of sight loss and in doing so presents a unique testimony of loss, rebirth and renewal, excavating the interior world of blindness.

Over an evening of interconnected events, this award-winning film and virtual reality experience provide a starting point to explore how we sense, and make sense of, the world, and to ask what lies at the borderline of physical and technological experience. ‘Notes on Blindness’ becomes our point of departure to discuss and explore alternative ways of seeing such as non-optic vision, inner vision and technology-aided vision.

This is a FREE, ticketed event. Full programme details and tickets available via our Eventbrite page: making-sense-notes-on-blindness.eventbrite.co.uk

Presented by the University of Glasgow's School of Culture & Creative Arts as part of its 2018/19 series on the theme ‘Inclusive/Exclusive’, in collaboration with the Substantial Motion Research Network.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Making Sense: Exploring Altered Perception Through ‘Notes on Blindness’ are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
