The Island of the Colorblind

01.12.2018 – 18.01.2019

In the late eighteenth century a catastrophic typhoon swept over Pingelap, a tiny atoll in the Pacific Ocean. One of the sole survivors, the king, carried the rare achromatopsia-gen that causes complete colorblindness. The king went on to have many children and as time passed by, the hereditary condition affected the isolated community and most islanders started seeing the world in black and white. Initiating her visual research in FSM the De Wilde tried to find ways to envision how people with achromatopsia see the world.
