The Design Perception of Visually Impaired People
Co-Presented: Hong Kong Art & Design Community
Speaker: Chan Ka Hing, Cheung Kai Fu
Design often comes from problem-solving. Through the conversation with Fu, we can know more about how Fu, a visually impaired person, solves the problems and inconveniences of daily life like taking a bus, paying cash, watching TV, and playing soccer through his own inventions and designs. The spirit of "getting inspired" is worth learning from both visually impaired and sighted people.
Chan Ka Hing, designer & visual artist, founding member of Hong Kong Art & Design Community. Believing “Design is not just a work of production and services, it is also a mode of thinking and an attitude of living.”, and participating actively in a social design project and promoting design critique recently.
Cheung Kai-Fu is one of the artists at the 8th Touch Art Festival. He began to lose sight at the age of 40, and now he has less than 0.1% of vision. He once worked as a carpenter but he laughed at himself that he had not yet completed his apprenticeship. He has participated in the “Touch Art Festival” for 5 years. He loves to let his imagination run wild, he is also passionate about collecting objects and remaking them into something useful or creative. In his free time, Cheung likes to create and feel life with his sense of touch.
