Audio-haptic-virtual Mona Lisa :The Blind and Painting

The purpose of the article is to explore in what ways the visual arts (with emphasis on painting) can be brought closer to the blind in the postmodern society, in which sight is perceived to be the chief sense and in which most information is based on images. The basic methods of presenting a work of art involve the remaining senses, mostly those of hearing and touch. It is of course not enough just to deliver a factual description of a painting or to transform it into tactile graphics – more complex techniques such as audio-description, method of associations, participating in role-playing, all with the aim of a holistic experience of the work of art, must be sought instead. In the world of virtual reality, additional equipment for the blind (e.g., data gloves) provides new opportunities.
