What went on at EBOS?

Here are the photos from East bay Open Studios.

My current sculptures are about teaching Braille to the sighted. The sculptures show another way to see, which is through texture. I've developed sculptural flashcards that assign colors to materials, so that you don't have to see to know the color of the object. I've linked together one material, like smooth plastic, and assigned it a color, like yellow. So when you feel a light switch that is made from smooth plastic, you'll know the color.
