Tasks / Blind Sculpting

Inspired by the Seeing Beyond Sight Photo Challenge, continue to create art in a state of disrupted senses:

1. Choose a medium.

2. Blindfold yourself.

3. Create a sculpture of something you sense while blindfolded.

4. Give the sculpture to a stranger, gallery, or museum. If a stranger, ask them to title it.

5. Document as you go.
