SciScreen : Notes on Blindness
If you have a question about this talk, please contact Vasee.
For March’s SciScreen event, in conjunction with Cambridge Science Festival, Dr Louise Fryer, UCL , introduces this special screening with an talk discussing the psychology of immersion in audio-visual media, as it relates to viewers with sensory impairment. Tickets are on-sale now.
When writer and theologian John Hull went blind in 1983, he began keeping an audiocassette diary of his daily life. When it was published in 1990, Oliver Sacks described it as ‘the most extraordinary, precise, deep and beautiful account of blindness’. Using total access to the recordings, Notes on Blindness is an ever-evolving artistic project that has included a short film and an engrossing VR experience. Dubbing actors with the recorded voice of Hull, its exploration of how dreams, memories and imagination are impacted by a lack of sight, this is a formally extraordinary insight into a hidden interior world.
