I was able to write a research paper on braille for this course, and found the topic quite interesting. This was the first time that I had really conducted any research into the subject, and I’ve been intrigued at the incredibly different and creative ways that this text technology has been implemented.
Accordingly, I created a gallery of particularly compelling photos of all things braille for this assignment. By creating this in Flickr, I was able to tap into an incredibly vast database of other contributor’s photos. There are some excellent examples included of braille being used in non-traditional ways, and even a few photos on the lighter side. The downside of creating a gallery in Flickr is that since I don’t own the works in question, I can’t make them static – that is, if someone that I’ve added to my gallery wants their photo removed, they can take it out. There should be 18 photos in there to start (the maximum that Flickr will allow in a gallery) – hopefully there will still be 18 by the time you read this!
