3D masterpieces for the blind

About the solution

“I was born with one arm shorter than the other. All my life, I continually had to prove that I was capable of doing everything I wanted to, from playing guitar and riding motorcycles to lifeguarding and weightlifting. I also had an uncle who worked as a mechanic and became blind in adulthood through glaucoma. I saw he was able to continue to do most anything a seeing person could do”, explained the designer.

Unseen Art wants to give the Mona Lisa and other world-renowned artworks the 3D treatment so that they can be touched, making them accessible to the blind and visually impaired. “There are many people in the world who have heard of classical artworks their whole lives but are unable to see them,” says Marc Dillon.

The project is currently crowdfunding on Indiegogo, offering 3D prints of the Mona Lisa for backers, which can be kept or donated to an organization serving the blind and visually impaired community. The money raised will be used to fund an online platform where the 3D files will be downloadable for free, making 3D printable art available worldwide, anywhere there is a 3D printer. The Mona Lisa is currently the only completed 3D artwork, but a panel of curators will later put together an entire collection.
