Meeting up with The Norfolk & Norwich Association for The Blind for research

Unknowing the city

Yesterday I rung The Norfolk & Norwich Association for The Blind to arrange a meeting so I can get information about the views of the visually impaired. I now have a direction for the project which was inspired by the photo of “The Forum” roof which looks like an eye.

At the blind institute centre, I met with Richard Polley and he showed me the views of what the visually impaired would see and the different types of visually impaired conditions there are. I also met a person who was blind so I could ask questions and get a perspective from a blind person. These were the visually impaired perception glasses I tried on:
