The perception of the self and of things around them is for blind people very physical. In the process of recognition sight doesn’t participate and the other senses re-born. Hands are eyes. Surfaces, odours, sounds, are colours.
In a time where the perception of the human being is merely esthetical I go backwards, to the places where the self evolves and grows in its inside and in the tactile experience of the other.
Pianissimo is an inwards journey.
Because it’s a world far from noise of external things, and because I tried to approach these people without invade their space, but silently partaking it: Pianissimo, in fact.
