OCAD | Can I Feel What You See? Multi-Sensory Design | Peter Coppin

OCADRegistration Required

OCAD University - Auditorium
We live in a highly visual world that excludes a significant number of people who are visually impaired or blind. Think about all the things around us and the way they’re designed - whether it’s our homes, our workplaces and the city we live in. I’m a visual person but as a researcher it became clear to me that we don’t have a good scientific understanding of design, and why we use certain kinds of representation that exclude people. Who are we designing for? Can we create multi-sensory designs that would allow us to hear a financial chart, feel a soccer game or use multiple senses to perform everyday tasks? We’ll explore these questions.
