When John Hull’s sight finally vanished completely after decades of deterioration, the British academic decided to document his new world on audio cassettes. In this innovative hybrid, Emmy award winning co-directors Peter Middleton and James Spinney use actors to lip sync the diaries, telling the story of Hull’s complex and articulate engagement with his condition. To step into Hull’s world, try the Notes on Blindness: Into Darkness virtual reality project in the Alternate Realities exhibition programme.
Followed by Q&A with directors James Spinney and Peter Middleton
