Tribute to John Blades

We pay tribute to structural engineer, award-winning radio producer, tape loop manipulator, disability advocate, spoken word artist, outsider art collector, experimental music and true crime aficionado, John Blades - who died in late 2011. We play material from John’s many radio programs, hear his friends’ and family’s accounts of his life and chart his history as a tireless supporter and exponent of ‘marginal’ culture. http://www.abc.net.au/radionational/programs/nightair/tribute-to-john-blades/3823736

Lights for the Blind

From http://www.abc.net.au/local/stories/2010/12/08/3087977.htm A simulated experience of being blind led designer Rob Caslick to create an innovative exhibition. After spending some time at the Milan Blind Institute where he experienced everyday life without vision, Rob Caslick made Lights for the Blind. According to the World Health Organisation, 90 per cent of the world's 160 million blind people have some light perception. The exhibition uses small LED lights to illuminate quotes in Braille. Mr Caslick says the 16-panel display features anecdotes from members of the Australian blind community. "The idea for the exhibition is to start a bit of a case study to see if it's worthwhile using LEDs in Braille, to make it easier for people to walk through a public space."

The Too Hard Basket

From http://www.abc.net.au/rn/360/stories/2009/2762394.htm Disabled people are rarely touched in a loving way or thought of as sexually desirable yet they have the same need for a sexual life as everyone else. In this confronting program John Blades, who has a major disability himself, talks to sex workers about why they work with disabled clients and the importance of touch to every human being. He also meets other people with disabilities; Gary who has burns to 60% of his body and finds that being touched by his wife on his burnt skin makes him feel desirable; and Caitlin, who has cerebral palsy, and whose first sexual experience was with a sex worker. Warning: There is material of an adult nature in the program
