Get Colour Blind by Kiyoshi Yamamoto

There is proof that we all see differently: colour blindness. Kiyoshi Yamamoto Farias investigated it thoroughly and created a project where he made colorful textiles for the colour blind called Get Colour Blind, so the colour blind can actually appreciate the textiles as well. To Kiyoshi, color blindness isn't properly defined. Take red for example. We can thousands and thousands of shades of red and magenta. A color blind person may not be able to see all these shades, but that's no reason to say the person is blind. They see colors differently from most people. The color blind are actually color deficient.
