Blind Field Shuttle is a non-visual walking tour in which participants line up behind the artist, link arms, and agree to shut their eyes for a roughly hour-long walk. Papalia describes the experience as an opportunity for the participant to unlearn visual primacy and
use their non-visual senses as a primary way of knowing the world. The project grew out of the artist’s choice to describe himself as a “non-visual learner” and exists as one in a series of related works that highlights the unseen bodies of knowledge in non-visual space.
Access notes: Please wear comfortable walking shoes. If you cannot participate due to an impairment that makes it difficult for you to hold onto the person in front of you, please email email@example.com to coordinate an alternative experience with Carmen during
his residency. ASL interpretation will be provided, please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have additional access needs.
