How can we share issues with visually impaired people in our daily lives? This project explores tactile communication and raises awareness of our environment. By researching frequently used keywords from random online tweets, I observed informal conversations about air quality, most of which complain about pollution. From this research, I designed rubber mug holders using laser technology to engrave words, such as "air quality", "air pollution", "dust", "particulate matter", and so on. These words created a tangible narrative that could be appreciated by both sighted and vision impaired people.
