The title caught my attention and I wondered; what can this be? Reading on I realised that the Invisible Exhibition was giving an insight into the life of a blind person. It sounded very interesting, so I decided to drop by checking it out.
How does a blind play chess?
The question was answered in the start of the exhibition, in the visible part. Here we were shown several objects, tools and articles that help the daily life of a blind person. Among these were a chess table, a weight, a speaking computer and so.
How does it feel to be blind?
The first session was just a warm-up before being taken into the dark. No light sources were there, so you felt as a blind person yourself. Here you got the chance to visit the pub, walk in the city, visit a statue park and experience how it feels to be blind in several situations.
The exhibition worked as an eye-opener, giving a little insight into the world of the blind, and it was also special that the guide escorting you in the darkness was a blind person.
