Event description

Description

This crunchy, slurpy, brainy type talk explores how designers can engage the human body in the experience of reading and communication. “Ocularcentrism” is the dominance of vision over all other senses in modern society. The empire of the eye excludes people who touch, hear, or smell but do not see. Inclusive design practices range from eyes-free interaction design and audio description to typographies and topographies of touch. Opening up typography to our other senses not only includes more people but reveals new possibilities for visual design as well. Ellen Lupton co-curated The Senses: Design Beyond Vision at Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum in 2018.
