Notes on Blindness

2016 - VR Experience

After losing his sight in 1983, John Hull began to record an audio diary documenting his discovery of "a world beyond sight." Hull's original recordings form the basis of this beautifully animated, interactive documentary, which uses real-time 3-D, virtual reality, and binaural sound to explore the world of the blind.

Each scene will address a memory, a moment and a specific location from John’s audio diary, using binaural audio and real time 3D animations to create a fully immersive experience in a world ‘beyond sight’.
