Sound Cane


English
/ Español / Français

Using public space installations, the cane of blind people turn into drumsticks – percussionist ones, those that are magic – turning the city in a musical instrument. Within his cane, the blind has the secret to play it. Of course, seeing people can also borrow or find a cane; they are also invited to activate this sound installations. For a moment, seeing people put themselves into the skins of the blind, they experience the city in a sonorous way.

With their canes, blind people become those “with an advantage” and reverse the traditional roles of “disabled men”
