Insight Into a World Without Light

Can one hour of being deprived of your sight prove an eye-opener? Find out for yourself in The Invisible Exhibition project at the Millennium Plaza in Warsaw.

The Invisible Exhibition takes visitors on an interactive journey into the world of darkness to help them realize the problems blind people have to cope with. During this unusual trip, you can try to go about various daily routines relying solely on your of hearing, smell, touch and sense of balance.

The exhibition is divided into two sections. The “visible” one comprises items and tools which blind people use in their daily lives and shows how they use computers. You can play Ludo and solve a simple jigsaw puzzle without using your sight, but that is all just a foretaste of what awaits in the “invisible” section. All the lights are turned off and suddenly everything around you is pitch dark. You have just entered what is the normal world for blind people.

The Invisible Exhibition aims to build a bridge between the world of the blind and the rest of the world. The exhibition’s blind guides take visitors to specially furnished and totally dark rooms and help them find their way around objects inside. The objects range from the simplest furnishings found in kitchens and bathrooms to anything that might await outside. You will get a totally different experience of taking a walk on a busy street, paying for coffee in a bar and moving around an apartment...
