In 2012, Danijel Šivinjski, artist, researcher and founder of blind fields, started performing blindfolded experiments in order to take the experience of his body-mind-spirit and art to the next level. The first actual impulse to start was a sudden challenging curiosity for creating something visual in the absence of visual stimuli.
After performing experiments inside his flat, he decided to go out on the streets, to walk around for hours holding his assistant’s arm and to take photographs blindfolded. He did blindfolded walks in different cities and countries; had blindfolded dinners; talked with blind people, ophthalmologists and different associations of the blind and visually impaired and had lectures about the whole experience.
Šivinjski is currently focused on art experiments in the nature and is collaborating with other artists and blind people with the goal to create and help creating art pieces inspired by the world of the blind and focused on the creative inclusion of the blind.
