Sine / The wheelchair

Sine
Sine

What do you see a chair that is built up on wheels and propelled by its owner? How do we, as wheelchair users, know more about the world we inhabit. Can the chair be designed not only to help retain mobility but to empower to explore the unknown. In this design, we want to demonstrate how powerful an ordinary wheelchair can be if it is turned into a digitally enhanced interactive tool for art: We're given the moment to leave impressions of where we are and how we feel, and share them with one another. What the collective action brings us is the courage to combat the impairment that defines us.
