Way back in April, I posted about Lisa Solomon & Her Hybrid World. At the time, I was fascinated by Lisa’s Dolly Toxins and Viruses work. That has not changed, but now there is a new collection to have a squizz at…

Lisa has created a set of 16 Crayola colour names with threads that match their namesakes represented in braille. When she was a child, her mother transcribed braille as a part-time job. Lisa always felt that it was like a secret language and loved looking at the pages of raised dots. She is interested in how we perceive colour and fascinated with the idea of “reading” color without sight, so she decided to create these pieces.
