Amazing Findings: Reveal, Feeling is Believing

June 06, 2012

Imagine if you were to lose your eyesight or only see shades of grey tomorrow, how would you be able to experience color? 

That's the premise of Reveal's project: Reveal, Feeling is Believing. It's a program that focuses on creating a sensory experience for visually-impaired people so they can feel color. Paired up with Pantone, they developed a system where every color is translated into a certain shape thus making it able to relate said shapes to a certain hue.

 

The system aims to create a tactile color, colors that are created based on different geometrical shapes combined. Every one of this variations corresponds to a specific shade of the spectrum, making it possible for the person to actually touch a color. It also covers the basics of color theory, starting from the basic ones -translated into shapes- that become more complex as they're being combined. It's definitely an interesting project that manages to come up with a non-visual language that brings light to the touch.
