DON'T PANIC LONDON & GUIDE DOGS CREATE A TEST OF BLIND AMBITION



Written by Dont Panic

Plug in your headphones, close your eyes and follow the experiences of Paralympian Libby Clegg via a 3D soundscape. Her younger years included school bullies and a host of struggles, but her time in the 2012 London Olympics showed the potential of hard work and ambition.  

The video utilises a 3D binaural soundscape, allowing you to immerse yourself in Libby's perspective by altering the physical relationship with hearing. In effect, you get the the impression of being surrounded by sound, unlike the stereo playback our brains are generally used to.

Libby has represented both Scotland and Great Britain, earning 3 bronze, 8 silver and 8 gold medals in various international competitions, such as the Paralympics held in Beijing 2008, London 2012 and the games in Rio 2016.

The video was launched on 8th September in tandem with the first day of the Paralympics 2016. Since then the video has had over 185,000 views, hopefully it can continue to challenge perceptions surrounding people who are visually impaired.
