A Touching Art Experience

Ethnographic research project presenting an anthropological analysis of embodied art appreciation among blind and visual impaired museum goers in London. The project was conducted at London art museums in spring 2012, and focusses on the role of touch, while exploring the possibilities of experiencing visual art without the sense of sight. It points to the embodied art experience as essentially multi-sensory and suggests further research into multi-sensory art appreciation and the interconnectedness of the sensory areas.
