IFC 2014: Architecture Through Other Eyes

architectuur“Wood warms up the sound” the American singer and songwriter Raul Midon says, playing his guitar and listening carefully to echo and reverb, to the acoustic atmosphere: Architecture Through Other Eyes is a project exploring how blind people’s perception of indoor surroundings, how architecture sounds and smells and feels (“Sighted people don’t touch things, you know”). The feature by Bente Hamel (Netherlands) is part of a feature series accompanying blind people through buildings; the audio pieces are part of a photo and audio book. Seeing through sounds: A thrilling concept, ample in sounds, yet, as a radio documentary lacking the book’s visual support, somewhat flat and static.
