How would you experience objects if you were lacking the sense of sight? This video demonstrates how students participating in Chipstone's Object Lab workshop think about art objects in a different way by describing them using only their sense of touch.

I LOVE ART! IT IS SO COOL. When you take a bunch of trash and glue it together it warms my heart. It is so Artsy. There is nothing i like more then art. I love coming to the IMA and buying 410 dollar plastic lawn chairs. I saw the same one at walmart last week. BUT WAIT!!! they are half off. So, they are only 205 dollars! i gotta take a smoke break cyyaa
I seriously just want to go home.... I HATEE ARTT!!!!
This is a very interesting video. It explores our sense of where we are and how we connect to it. I have to try this!
