When you view the world from a wheelchair, things don’t always look the way you are used to. Building, bodies and streets become an unrecognizable wall that encapsulate you. Artist Darin Wixon’s latest work aims to address a topic that is never discussed: the view of the world from a wheelchair. Oversized mixed media structural installations coupled with large scale photographs and sound installation engulf the viewer and subtly attack the senses and begin a dialogue with the world like you’ve never seen it before.

Called the world as I see it, the piece is a large-scale installation using photography, structural construction, and music, among other resources. It is a project that aims to awaken senses that are typically asleep in the general public, through the immersion of a reality that is not their own. The installation is based on the deployment of a series of physical and technological devices, so when combined, the elements dissolve and integrate into an experience that points to a whole, both physically and symbolically. The object of the art is very concrete: raising awareness about the difficulties faced by persons with limited mobility, more precisely, those dependent on the assistance of a wheelchair. Curated by Pablo Rojas in collaboration with Installation Coordinator Miranda Pauls and sound installation by Rob Conlazo and Gustavo Buchiniz, the project is currently seeking funding via Kickstarter.
