PS. Saw the film, Notes on Blindness yesterday based on the audio diaries of John Hull who slowly lost his sight in 1983. His memories slowly faded over time. He could touch photos, but couldn't see them. #printyourpics #theyarepriceless #notesonblindness

Are you/do you know anyone with sight loss in Malvern and the surrounding area who may be interested in some FREE art workshops at Malvern Library?
I will be running two printmaking and collage workshops using fabric, paper and natural materials. 🍁🌸🐚🌿🌼🌳🍃🍂
We will be exploring the Library garden as well as Oriental garden design features, and the emotive quality of gardens.
By the end of the second workshop everyone will have made a paper or fabric wall-hanging, inspired by Chinese scrolls.
-
The results of the workshops will be displayed in the Library Gallery during May, following this month's 'Let's See' exhibition of works by partially-sighted artists. - which launches at 11am on Wednesday with an opening event and a FREE music workshop.

너무나 강렬했어⠀⠀
날 덮치듯이 나타나신 거야⠀⠀

가장 놀라웠던 점은⠀⠀
하나님이 떠나지 않았다는 거야⠀⠀

“Rain has a way of bringing out the contours of everything, it throws a coloured blanket over previously invisible things; instead of an intermittent and thus fragmented world, the steadily falling rain creates a continuity of acoustic experience.” - Professor John Hull 🔸

"a note on smiles: nearly every time i smile i am consciously smiling. i mean i'm conscious of the movement. even one might say the effort of the smile. i think the reason is there is no returning smile, one never gets anything from ones one smiles, one is sending off dead letters, consequently i can feel myself stop smiling
or i think i can, i must ask someone close to me whether this is true or not"

Saturday train reading 🚂 This book is fascinating 🧐 Notes on Blindness, by John M.Hull. Sometimes I feel a book has a time and place for each person, it does not have to carry meaning for everybody (I’ll shut up now 🙄) #saturdaymorning #onthetrain #bookstagram #booklover #notesonblindness

Dear all,
Meet us at Béryte theater on Tuesday, February 20th, at 7:00 PM to watch «Notes on blindness», the forth movie of this tenth season of the Psyné club USJ!
This event is in collaboration with Club Inclusion USJ  Notes on blindness 
A British film by James Spinney and Pete Middleton (2016) [O.V. in English with English subtitles, 90 minutes] 
Followed by a discussion on how blindness affects the person and his relationship with others and the world. 
With 
Christina Riachi, Ph.D. •PG Diploma in CBT (complex cases) from University of Oxford •Ph.D. in social sciences/psychology from King’s College London • MSc in Organizational Psychology & Psychiatry from King’s College London • BA in Psychology from AUB 
Synopsis: 
Notes on Blindness is an insight into the life of John Hull, professor and theologian with a deeply reflective bent, who became totally blind after decades of steadily deteriorating vision, an academic who, as he descended into the darkness of total blindness, kept an audio diary on cassettes starting in 1983. These very recordings are lip-synced by the actors and they, along with a unique visual style, attempt to recreate John's perspective on his experience. The memoirs capture the pure physical and psychological turmoil experienced by John after losing his vision, and as he says, battling to live in reality instead of the nostalgic world that his brain is forcing upon him. 
Free Entrance 
Tel: 78/831 148 - 81/684 754 
Place: Béryte Theater, IESAV - Campus Des Sciences Humaines, Université Saint-Joseph, Damascus Street, Beirut.
Looking forward to see you!

“The genius of the film is in allowing us to understand and visualise the world of blindness… A beautiful, accessible and thoughtful work of art.” - THE GUARDIAN, Charlie Phillips

NOTES ON BLINDNESS - A FILM AND VIRTUAL REALITY EXPERIENCE BY PETER MIDDLETON & JAMES SPINNEY
🎥
After premiering at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival in January, both the feature film and the sister VR project screened at a number of leading international film festivals to huge acclaim.
📽️
In 1983, after decades of steady deterioration, writer and academic John Hull became totally blind. To help him make sense of the upheaval in his life, he began keeping a diary on audiocassette. Over three years he recorded over sixteen hours of material, a unique testimony of loss, rebirth and renewal, excavating the interior world of blindness.
Published in 1990 under the title ‘Touching the Rock’, the diaries were described by author and neurologist Oliver Sacks as, ‘A masterpiece... The most precise, deep and beautiful account of blindness I have ever read.’
🎬
NOTES ON BLINDNESS is a multi-platform project based on John’s original audio recordings. The project includes a feature length documentary and virtual reality project released alongside the film.
