ACCESS TO ART & CULTURE 文化藝術零距離

Art and culture enhance every part of our lives. They bring us joy, and help us make sense of the past, understand the changes of our society; to engage our own experiences and; to connect and empathise with others.

We believe that art and culture make life better, help to build diverse communities and improve our quality of life. Accessible to art and culture can inspire our education system, boost our economy and give our nation international standing.

Museums, galleries, historical venues and touristy spots are filled with wisdom, beauty and thoughts. We want to encourage equal access and participation for the visually impaired and elderly with low vision. We can prove that it is possible to enhance the art and culture experience even without the ability of vision.

文化和藝術提升我們生活的每一部份。為我們帶來歡樂;讓我們認識過去;理解社會的變遷;連繫自身經驗和人與人之間的關係。

我們相信文化藝術使生命變得更美好,能建立多元社群,使生活更生動活潑。無障礙的文化藝術接觸能啟發教育制度,刺激經濟和建構國家的形象和國際地位。

博物館,畫廊,具歷史價值的地方和旅遊景點均充滿著無限的智慧,美感和想法。我們提倡視障人士和低視力長者能有平等的機會去接觸和參與文化藝術。驗證著縱然沒有視力,他們仍可擁有非一般的文化藝術體驗。

 

HOW DOES IT WORK 如何運作

Tactile-Audio Interaction System(TAIS) is a new multidimensional approach in art and culture that excites and enhances mental image building for the visually impaired.

TAIS is also an interactive platform that enable the visually impaired to understand and engage visual information through touching and hearing with the integration of tactile painting and audio description.

Carefully contoured the visual elements and information with raised lines to first depict the general figure accompanied audio description activated upon sensitive fingers of the visually impaired. TAIS presentations provide a multidimensional perspective of a painting, photograph; graphic, architecture and scenery even to those with compromised vision.

「觸感聽覺互動系統」(TAIS)是以多元感官刺激來鑑賞藝術文化的新方向,藉此激發並提升視障人士建構思維圖像的能力。

TAIS 也是一個互動平台,透過融合觸感圖和口述影像,讓視障用家通過觸感和聽覺,接收並理解視覺資訊。

運用凸線,細緻地勾勒出視覺元素和資訊;當視障人士按下按鈕,便可啟動口述影像功能。兩者互相配合下,便能描繪出藝術品的基本輪廓。TAIS 之呈現方式能為畫像、照片、圖像、建築及風景注入了多從感官的體驗,惠及健視和視覺有所缺憾的朋友。
