side-event to the exhibition "My Body, Your Voice"
Adviser KSK Tamura
presentation title "The country of the blind"
Date: 4th of June 2016
Normally, in many places of the stations, explanatory maps written in Braille code are placed. During the workshop "Designing a country without sight" , it came out that most of blind people do not use them. They prefer to navigate themselves through their hearing. TAMLAB produced a specific sound for Shibuya Station called "Shibuyaeki-no-uta", which came out of a combination of a trains simulation approaching to the station. The idea is to envelope the station out of a proper acoustic project-design for better distinguish "Shibuyaeki-no-uta". The peculiarity of each sound might help the blind to better recognise the place where they move.
Moreover, the three-dimensional model, scale 1:4000 of the Shibuya Station, will replace the Braille code. By touching the model-product , the image of the space will come out easily, within the comprehension of the station itself.
