Artist Lisa J. Murphy in full ‘tactile mind’ production mode.

Yes, you heard it folks. And nothing screams ‘success’  like making tactile mind books while wearing rainbow troll pajamas and a respirator mask. I walked outside and scared a squirrel.  A beautiful afternoon in Toronto.

‘tactile mind’, VoicePrint, and a yellow bra.

So I had an on-camera interview today with VoicePrint Canada about ‘tactile mind’ the book .  I was a little late running out of the house, and instead of spending an extra 30 seconds hunting through my drawers,  I threw a yellow bra on under a (sheer) black top. Genius move. I checked myself in a mirror – the bra was not visible. Just received a picture taken after the shoot. Guess what? Yellow bras glow in florescent lighting. My mother is going to be appalled.

Big day & ‘tactile mind’ at Lens Factory June 18, 19, 20.

I did my first digital photoshoot today. Got to burn a $12 hole in my own corporate card. When I ate dinner outside,  a rat stumbled into view, and then a pigeon crashed into my window.  Big day. Finally got details for book signing sorted out. June 18, 19, 20 (9am – 5pm all three days) at Lens Factory. It is located at 2186 Queen Street East in Toronto. I will be there from start to finish.  A few  media outlets I sent info to regarding this tactile mind book signing are: Austrian Times, Radio New Zealand, Serius XM, New York Daily News, MTV (Canada), Channel 5 London, and Colombian National Radio.

TACTILE MIND STUDIO LIMITED IS WORKING ON A NEW PROJECT.

Yes, I am about to embark on a new project, to follow in the footsteps of ‘tactile mind’ the book. I am hoping to have a portion of it done within the next couple weeks, and show it off at the gallery show in Toronto; June 18,19 & 20.

For anyone who is confused, TACTILE MIND STUDIO LIMITED is me – I incorporated my business.

There are articles about ‘tactile mind’ in May issue of Playboy Italy, GQ China, and in June issue of  Toronto Life and soon to be in U.K. Forum.

Stay tuned,

How and when did the idea for ‘tactile mind’ happen?

5 years ago, Lisa J. Murphy was making tactile diagrams for vision impaired & blind childrens’ educational books, and thought “why not?”. Lisa had received a certificate in Tactile Graphics from the Institute for the Blind, and decided to use her new  knowledge with her own photographs of artistic nudes. Lisa wanted to challenge herself, and she began to create tactile pictures for adults. Over the next 2 years, her idea turned into a book consisting of 17 3-D pictures, with grade-one Braille accompaniment.
