The Hills Are Alive…

Keith Salmon is a professional artist who has been visually impaired for the last 25 years. Trained in fine arts and sculpture, Salmon worked to adapt his techniques as his eyesight deteriorated due to diabetic retinopathy. This image is of Glen Rosa on the Isle of Arran, Scotland.

“Although I am primarily a painter, I have been experimenting with the idea of incorporating sound with some of my larger artworks. In late 2015 I was invited to join a small research team working at Microsoft in Seattle, who had developed the idea of using their Kinect technology to create an audio interpretive tool to help visually impaired folk better interpret two-dimensional images. This evolved into a large installation piece called The Oregon Project, which is now to be exhibited at the Tent Gallery in Edinburgh University in April this year.”
