Ed Gallagher was a visual artist until he slowly lost his sight over 8 years. Inspired by space technology, Ed Gallagher developed a special remote guidance system for the blind using wireless internet technology to communicate with a remote operator. Receiving clear commands from someone viewing Ed's world through his head mounted web cam, Ed, as a blind man, is able to participate in every day tasks, such as shopping, sailing and riding a bicycle. This journey began when Ed was invited by a NASA-backed arts consortium to participate in a parabolic flight simulating weightlessness. As a blind man, they were curious to know what his experience of "Zero G" would be like. Ed found it a profound and moving experience, which he hoped to duplicate on Earth in some way. This film by Alison Victor and Eric Predoehl is a short exploration of Ed's unique exploration.
