The Unseen Art (opens in new tab) project is a campaign launched via Indiegogo (opens in new tab) by Finnish designer, Marc Dillon, to re-creating classic paintings in 3D.
This is a new, accesible way to experience art geared towards the blind and visually impaired – allowing them, for the first time, to experience the inspiration, education, and thought-provoking feelings that meaningful art creates.
These 3D printed masterpieces, unlike the originals displayed far from reach in pricey museums may be touched and made freely available worldwide in both a gallery setting and in the comfort of your own home.
With the passion to create equal access for art globally the Unseen team are involving artists from all over the world to re-create classical art paintings in 3D.
3D printing enables people to produce the art in low costs, anyone in the world can download them for free making it accessible wherever there's a 3D printer!
