George Redhawk is a pretty brilliant man. Having started to lose his sight while teaching medicine, his new-found disability forced him to give up his job after only four years.
Suffering from visual distortions created by his mind trying to fill the gaps in his vision, George was left at a crossroads.
Instead of crumbling, George turned his disability to his advantage. Turning to computer technology to help, he created “The World Through My Eyes” series.
“Following the loss of most of my vision, I began to explore this medium as a means to express the world through my damaged sight,” Redhawk told Graphic Art News.
“My art is designed with the idea to challenge and in some cases, disturb the visual sense of ‘order’, very much in the same way that my vision has become a constant challenge to me.”
Designed to show people what the world looks like through his eyes, George has created an amazing visual spectacle – all whilst being legally blind.
For a man who is legally blind (a person is considered to be legally blind if he or she has a best corrected vision of 20/200 in their best seeing eye), these GIFs really are amazing. Visually stimulating and truly hypnotic, it gives you the tiniest glimpse into the life of someone with a disability like George.
While fully-sighted people will never fully grasp his struggle, these images are a great way of learning more.
George Redhawk è un uomo piuttosto brillante. Dopo aver iniziato a perdere la vista la sua disabilità lo ha costretto a rinunciare al suo lavoro dopo soli quattro anni.
George ha creato "Il mondo attraverso i miei occhi" e spiega:
"Dopo la perdita di gran parte della mia vista, ho cominciato ad esplorare il mondo". "La mia arte vuole sfidare e, in alcuni casi, disturbare il senso visivo di 'ordine' quindi George ha creato un incredibile spettacolo visivo - tutto pur essendo cieco.
Queste GIF sono davvero sorprendenti e visivamente stimolanti.
