I Can See, But I Can't Understand, 2015

50 x 122 cm

Plexiglass, lightbulbs, wood

The installation consists of a plexiglass box, filled with lightbulbs which form letters of the Braille alphabet. The plexiglass entirely diminishes the purpose, and the function of Braille, which is meant to be read by touch. The information is available, but I am unable to reach or understand it. The text reads (in Estonian): A blind man, keeping guard.
