How important is tactile paving or yellow warning lines on the edge of a platform for a visually impaired person?
These paintings evolved from a conversation with a person living with Congenital Cataracts and Nystagmus.
“I have no natural ability to focus. I struggle with depth perception in brightly lit areas or full sun.
Car lights feel too bright in the evening”
Through this painting and 'Platform Edge' I wanted to suggest how a visually impaired person might view a train station and use it safely. In 'Underground Edge' there is a bright yellow warning line at the edge of the platform so a user would be likely to see this if they have some vision. There is also tactile paving which is often not seen but would be felt under foot. In 'Platform Edge' there is no tactile paving or yellow warning line at the platform edge.
