WHAT IS IT?
Hailed as a groundbreaking, unique, and never before "seen" exhibition, Dialog in the Dark will lead visitors through a series of New York City environments, highlighted by city-centric scents, sounds, temperatures, and textures, in complete darkness.
Relying on blind and visually-impaired guides, exhibit-goers will "see NYC" and visit many well know landmarks without the sense of sight while armed with an authentic walking cane. Imagine taking a rumbling subway to your favorite location or maneuvering the crossroads of the world in Times Square while not being able to see a thing. Rest assured, the sounds and the smells (both pleasant and NOT SO PLEASANT) will all be there to greet you. But will that be enough to guide your safe passage?
Dialog in the Dark
will forever change your perception of what it means to be blind or have low vision. Come see New York without seeing it.
