I’ve Got a Good Feeling About This— Gina Bates

Made after a visit to a school to meet David, who is a Production Technician for Learning Support. As part of his job he adapts school material for the visually impaired students. In order to make tactile illustrations so that they can feel the diagrams, he prints on to a special paper called Tex2 Swell, and then puts it under a ZY-Fuse Heater. Using this technique I created a series of 3 posters entitled ‘I’ve got a good feeling about this:’
1. Type poster, with braille
2. For visually impaired people, colour becomes pattern
3. Illustration of the ZY-Fuse Heater
