Creative idea explanation:
Audio description is a special narrative technique - the only way blind people can participate in art. But only few Polish museums provide audio descriptions. Our brief was to make the public and museums aware of audio descriptions.We organized a charity exhibition and auction "Art Never Seen". But instead of showing original artworks we exhibited headphones and players with recorded audio descriptions of the works. Gallery visitors could see the art using only ears and imagination. Exactly as blind people do.Then we put the works up for auction. Bidders could see the original artworks only after the event.
