A Personal Reflection and Pictures of Great Inspirational Tactile Art Works From Around the Globe

Beyond the line of sight

  • My fingers are my eyes, my hands are my ears, I create a sense of space with my mind.

  • I depend on the memories of what I do, not on the memories of what I see.

  • Everyone has their language expressing things in their own unique way.

  • I remember a place through my senses even though I can not see it. The warmth of the sun: rain and wind. Different sounds and smells, rough and smooth textures the taste of food and drink, I take in every moment.

  • I learnt the meaning of freedom when I learnt to accept myself as I am now, to be independent and live for every moment. Taking small or big steps to find your way in life.

  • Accept yourself and do what you think is right in life.

  • Be true.
