Read me
Photographic prints with Braille imprint
2018

For the Read Me series, I asked a group of friends to describe a specific photograph, as they would to a blind person. No constraints were posed as to the length, style, or format of the description. The image was also run through an image recognition API, Cloudsight. Afterwards, each text was translated to Braille Grade 1 and imprinted onto a blown-up copy of the original image, at the accessible technology firm Sertec.

A big thank you to everyone who collaborated on this project: Abel Andrade, Alexandra Belo, José Carlos Neves, Sara Vicente, Susana Pires, Tiago Rorke, and Vitor Mingacho.

Would also like to express my sincere gratitude to Dr Paul Lowe for his valuable insight!
