Marc Dillon recently teamed up with the operating system maker 'Jolla' to help the visually impaired experience the world of art. For those who are blind or visually impaired, classic artwork has often remained out of reach. This project provides a new way to experience traditional art forms.

'Unseen Art' is a project that aims to make iconic works of art accessible to those who are visually impaired. The project involves scanning high-resolution photographs of many different paintings. The designers then use 3D modeling software to create a multi-dimensional interpretation of each piece. The 3D models contain tactile details that can be felt by those who are unable to see. As a result, the models help the visually impaired access traditional works of art.

Unseen Art is currently running an Indiegogo campaign to continue producing the 3D paintings.
