"Famous artwork is usually described visually. From Mona Lisa's smile to the swirls of "Starry Night" to Monet's lilies, the experience of enjoying a renowned painting is often reserved for those who can see it.

Unseen Art wants to flip that notion on its head. Currently raising funds through an Indiegogo campaign, the Finnish nonprofit aims to develop a software platform that would be accessible to both artists and people with visual impairment.

Using the platform, artists would be able to scan photos of famous artworks and recreate them for 3-D printing purposes. The blueprints would be open source — in other words, free and unrestricted — and anyone with access to a 3-D printer could then use the blueprints to (literally) get their hands on their very own masterpiece."
