At the crossroads of disability studies, design, comics studies and art, Shapereader was initially designed for comics readers with visual impairment. It is built on a growing repertoire of tactile ideograms (tactigrams) that provide haptic equivalents for all the semantic feature of a comics narrative. Shapereader transposes semantic cognition to the reader’s fingertips. Its research was funded by the Kone Foundation in 2015 and its ongoing outreach plan for raising awareness has been unfolding in a variety of formats, contexts and collaborations. It is a trans-disciplinary, inclusive project that promotes an embodied, non-retinal, narrative experience with an international outreach unique in the History of Comics. In 2020, its new implementation, Tangible Natives comes as an ambitious international coproduction between the Onassis Foundation (GR), Vooruit and C-Takt (BE) and Outset (GR).
