A BRAILLE Playboy magazine, a talking ski bumbag and the ball used in the first blind cricket match played in Melbourne in 1922 are among items in the Albury Library Museum’s latest exhibition.
Living in a Sensory World shows how Australians with eye conditions learn, work, play sport, create art and carry out everyday tasks.
Through objects, interactive displays and multimedia, it explore a world that relies on sound, touch and smell to navigate through the environment.
Vision Australia chief Ron Hooton opened the display and Cheryl Newman, of Wodonga, was guest speaker.
Albury-based Vision Australia team manager Kerry Strauch said it highlighted things used by people who were blind or had low vision.
A joint presentation of the Powerhouse Museum and Vision Australia, it draws on Vision Australia’s heritage collection and Museum Victoria’s Royal Institute for the Blind collection.
It runs to January 27.
