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”.

Lisa J. Murphy Previous Work Tactile Snail

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.

tactile atelier bookmark on W Radio and AOL News

So I got out of bed yesterday morning after a full 4 hours of sleep, pumped myself full of coffee by 8:57 am, and the phone never rang for the 9am interview with W Radio – Bogota, Colombia.  Maybe they meant next Saturday?

Tomorrow morning tactile atelier bookmark will be discussed on/for AOL news.

Fingers crossed.

tactile mind book in news in Afghanistan

Supposedly the media reports surrounding my book had made it to the front lines in Afghanistan – to the Canadian troops.

Good. Regardless of what the article(s) said, I hope it lightened up somebody(s) day.

tactile atelier bookmark heels and lingerie

Why did I take pictures of women in high-heeled shoes and  lingerie, and sculpt these images into a second project? Because it’s beautiful imagery. It’s imagery that’s real in a sighted world.  When one blind proofreader ‘saw’ the picture of the high-heeled shoes, he/she couldn’t believe that this footwear actually exists.  Same with the underwire bra.  I find it so amazing that items and images that are a part of day to day living for those of us with sight, have not yet been invented for those who cannot see.

tactile mind featured on CBS show The Doctors

tactile mind the book will be featured for a minute, maybe two, this Friday, December 3 on ‘The Doctors’. I’m stoked; I receive an end of show credit for this!  The producers from CBS whom I dealt with were great.  The book got stuck in customs (in Milwaukee?) and didn’t make it to the taping on time, so I’m curious to see how  imagery was put together.  Sure it will be amazing-
