This project was born from the personal need to investigate my form of color blindness and try to face its social stigma.
Nothing to See is a collection of Ishihara plates that are illegible to me, made legible only by a sighted person, who by going over the numbers/shapes they have identified will reveal to the color-blind what is shown. This will open up a dialogue, which will help the color-blind to be able to talk about it and de-stigmatize the deficit, bringing both parties closer together.
Often a color-blind person finds themselves subjected to the goliardia of other people towards them and although this can also be done without malice, this inevitably intervenes in the self-perception, of their own limits and of their own possibilities. A color-blind person could then develop insecurities, not consider themselves suitable for certain jobs and be induced to give up pursuing their vocation, aptitude, passion.
The Ishihara tables were generated with a Processing algorithm developed by me. The code turned out to be the only tool to be able to generate the tables, as my deficit would have made it impossible for me to manually create them.
