Dua Ma Chu
Six blind kids and their cameras
They are the only photographers in the world who cannot see their own works.
Going beyond their limit, six visually-impaired kids listen, touch, and feel to challenge the meaning of “seeing”. They recorded their impressions about their favorite scenes in the moment with cameras to share their perspectives in “seeing the world”.
To allow them to feel their own works, sculptor Chen Yi-Chang turn the children’s works into 3D reliefs, so that they could get a picture of how their photographs look like.
“Dua Ma Chu” (Taiwanese: big eyes) redefines our meaning of “eyes”. The kids who is visually-impaired may not see the world with “eyes” as we do. Yet, they have other “eyes” as well. It may be ears, skin, fingers, friends, or family. The purpose of this exhibition is to open different eyes for children, encouraging them to connect with the world in their own ways. Meanwhile, the public may see the stories of these visually-challenged kids and the lovely worlds in their minds via photography.
