Tactile Mind Studio Limited Lisa J. Murphy New Tactile Book Spring 2015

Book of tactile photographs with braille for the blind/vision impaired to be released Spring 2015.

Hopefully all diagrams will pass second proofreading, and my thermoform machine won’t eat them.

It’s taken me awhile to get this finished – Life got in the way.

 

new work spring 2015

Lisa J Murphy Previous Work Tactile Canadian Lynx

A tactile thermoform diagram of a Canadian Lynx, side view.

This was my very first “acceptable” tactile diagram; my first try looked like “roadkill with oven mitts”.

Found this tactile thermoform page in a box. I believe it’s a type of sea snail.

I created the original sculpture using diagramming foil.

Lisa J. Murphy diagrams for research for the Universita di Roma

I have been contacted by an Italian scientist in the Dipartmento Di Psicologia, Sapienza, Universita di Roma to do some diagrams for research in relation to the “representation of the body in spinal cord patients”.

Very interesting. I’m up for the challenge. Just awaiting further instruction.

working on project 3

Creating tactile project number 3.  This project has been deemed “impossible to translate” by a few vision impaired / blind proofreaders I have discussed it with.  I’m curious if I can pull it off.

tactile mind tactile atelier bookmark in TIME magazine

I was at a gas station in L.A. yesterday and managed to pick this up; TIME Magazine, dated Jan. 17, 2011.

Classic quote (but I’ve never called this work ‘porn’).

tactile atelier bookmark in AOL News, CBS News, Time Magazine

I did an interview with Monica Garske about a month ago for AOL News.  It came out yesterday.

It has started the ball rolling again & I have been  receiving media requests most of the day.

I hope more people take the time to realize the beauty of this work and the value it has for a non-sighted reader.
