NOTES ON BLINDNESS: INTO DARKNESS
After losing his sight in 1983, John Hull began recording an audio-diary documenting his discovery of “a world beyond sight.” John’s original recordings form the basis of this interactive experience, which uses real time 3D, virtual reality, and binaural sound to explore the interior world of blindness. Coming summer 2016 on all VR devices. #NotesOnBlindness
