Invented by Charles Barbier in the early 19th century, Night Writing was a form of tactile writing meant to aid the French military in reading battlefield communications in the dark of night.


This piece of night writing is a small bark sculpture of a boat, also known as a barque. Night Writing was later simplified by Louis Braille. The raised silver dots inside spell 'barque' in Braille.


An object made with languages--visual, material, tactile, auditory.
