Starhill Gallery

14.10.2010, Thursday


Went to Starhill gallery for an exhibition with my college course mates. Quite a number of people showed up, which was surprising, seeing that the date was in the middle of our semester break.


And Segi could really give more support in these field trips. At least provide us transport instead of asking us to drive ourselves all the time!




The exhibition was about Braille installation art.


Braille is something like the language of blind people. They read and write with it. Each Braille character is made up of six dot positions, arranged in a rectangle containing two columns of three dots each.




Something really different from what I had expected to see.


We had the chance to really feel like a blind person does as we went into the room that was closed out from lights, and we touched our way through all the braille characters on the wall.


It was a great experience, even though we didn't understand a word of it.


And a quite unique exhibition to be seen in Malaysia.


Group photo before we left!
I have no idea how our photographer managed to take such a blurry picture ><



In the dark, the blind are the kings.


Be grateful for what you have, 
Shanay
