Problem Statement
Current accommodations for the blind in art museums are limited and rarely provide engaging and meaningful experiences.
Tactile Art Display
Refreshable Tactile Display
We created the Pixel, a refreshable tactile display, to help people with blindness have meaningful experiences with art.
Current Accommodations
  • Audio Devices
  • QR Codes
  • Specialized Tours
  • Phone Applications
  • Sensory Programs
  • Touch Tours
  • Tactile Representations
Do blind people go to museums?
Design Criteria
Our end goal was to provide more meaningful and widespread access to art in museums for people with visual impairments. In order to achieve that we created these criteria.
Mood Board
Museums are carefully curated environments designed to draw all your focus to the art. We wanted the Pixel to echo that notion so we chose a minimal and clean form language to make the device fit in with its intended environment.
Story Board
Throughout the ideation process we wanted to ensure our solution could be reproducible, affordable, scalable, comprehendible, and authentic. These criteria were developed to achieve a balance between the wants and needs of the museums (our buyer) and people with blindness/low vision (our user).
