GARLIC & GREENS focuses on food and migration stories. The final product will be a multi-media experience accessible for people with visual disabilities and their allies.

To meet this challenge, GARLIC & GREENS is researching different types of tactile art: images meant to be touched that are designed specifically for audiences with low or no vision. Our project will also be informed by audio games and interactive documentary. Through these and other examples, we will explore the fluidity of visible and invisible media.

Increasingly the practice of artists and media makers has taken on many forms. Audiences are asked to smell, feel, taste, and hear in addition to engaging in ways of seeing. Our project is a part of sensory studies, an interdisciplinary field that begins with an anthropology of the senses as it intersects with aesthetics and phenomenology.
