Theme: Nonprofit institution of disabled people of Samara region, "The Center of Social Initiatives", invites you to participate in a mail-art project. The theme is "4 Senses". Most people usually have 5 basic senses: sight, hearing, touch, taste and smell. The visual sense is by far the most critical because it gives us the majority of information about our environment. There are colorful ads, shop windows, colored walls, vivid buses and trams around us. There is a lot of visual information so we often pay a little attention to it. But the people who lack sight usually have only four
base sensations. How does one live without this critical sensory ability?
