Author and Son

On Thursday January 29th Oliver Bayley was involved in a snow boarding accident. While he is lucky to be alive his injuries require that he use a wheel chair for about 3 months. This blog is his attempt to document this new lifestyle. As a designer, Oliver often uses ethnographic type research to inform his work. The inspiration for this blog came to Oliver when he realized that this experience will be unlike any other type of research he has even been involved in – actually living the role 24/7.

Oliver fully understands that what he is doing is nothing new and that many people live in wheelchairs all of their lives. He has already discovered that living in a wheelchair is far more involved than he had thought as a fully mobile person. He simply hopes to learn from this experience and become a more aware person than previous.
