Falling in Love with the Problem

We made something to stimulate discussion about how different it is for blind children to play with toys and the challenges they’re facing. We made a puzzle where people have to fit pieces into holes with the same shape while blindfolded. When the puzzle is finished the pieces form the sentence ‘taken for granted’. This is to make people aware about that they take their eyesight for granted, but that it isn’t for everyone. This is doable when you have sight, but when you can’t see it become’s a lot harder to finish. We want people to experience the frustration about being blind. We hope people will start discussing about the challenges afterwards.
