Before I’m going to start with individual presentations from this year’s edition of Device_art 3.009, held last month in Zagreb, I owe you few wordz on the concept and origins from the organizers of the festival, Kontejner – bureau of contemporary art praxis.
Mika Fukumori: Ototenji
Young design student Ana Zupic created in 2008 a prototype of a tool she entitled ‘Map for the blind’ or ‘A Tactile Map for Visually Impaired’ intended to be in use as equipment for better socialization and integration into urban environment.
The map I saw projected the city of Zagreb, but naturally, the project could be carried out and adapted to any space or situation.
