Event Details

Artists: 42 Interactive (Australia) / Digby Webster (Australia) 

Many people with disabilities have amazing talents and heightened senses. Some express these attributes using their artistic abilities.  

Digby Webster is a widely exhibited, Sydney-based visual artist with disability. His canvases burst with vibrant colour whether they are abstracts, portraits or landscapes.

Digby’s perception of the world around him is fascinating. See What I See is an interactive installation that gives visitors a chance to experience the way Digby sees us. Stand in front of the frame and see yourself mirrored through advanced facial recognition technology that interprets your features and expressions into a morphing vision of colour and light that is uniquely Digby in style.

42 Interactive hope that the installation brings attention and exposure to artists with disabilities, and helps encourage inclusion of people of all abilities.
