What do you see?

About What do you see?
It’s a touchable work – a woven textile with earplugs. It is made to be touched and not just seen with eyes. It brings the idea – you don’t need eyes to see, you need vision. 
The name of that work is, “What do you see”. With the headphones is “written” in braille – now I can see. So, the one who can’t physically see it, can ,however, touch it and be part of this process – “viewer” / artwork. I used earbuds because nowadays we use them a lot but it actually damages our hearing. So, I decided – first, I am going to destroy the ear buds. Second, I transformed their function – they are now a help for this artwork to be read. 
I wanted to make it because of all the people who can see something through other senses. We all have five sense and usually use only one of them to “see” the art.  – Vilyana Milanova
