See what happens when a person born blind is asked to draw

We don’t know much about the world that the average person born blind might see. While we do know that other senses can be used to give a person a rough field of vision, it can be difficult to know visually what they may observe in their mind.

Tommy Edison was a boy born blind and in this video below he is asked to draw a series of objects that represent things in everyday life. He was asked to draw a car, a cat, himself and more. The results of his drawings can be very interesting especially because he has never actually seen any of these images or asked to replicate them visually before. This is a truly interesting experiment and some of the results of the drawings may shock you and show you just how keep of senses the average blind person might have.
