The workshop will be led by one of the participating visually impaired artists, Cheung Kai Fu,who will guide the visually impaired and the sighted in the making of handy gadgets for their daily lives. These include the “Magic Road Sign” and the “Untie Pin”. The “Magic Road Sign” refers to a travel sign that can be changed to make it easier for the visually impaired people to carry around and go out alone. “The “Untie Pin” is used to untie knots, so that people can solve the problem of “untangling”.
Cheung Kai-Fu began to lose sight at the age of 40, and now he has less than 0.1% of vision. He once worked as a carpenter but he laughed at himself that he had not yet completed his apprenticeship. He has participated in the “Touch Art Festival” for 5 years. He loves to let his imagination run wild, he is also passionate about collecting objects and remaking them into something useful or creative. In his free time, Cheung likes to create and feel life with his sense of touch.
