Abstract

The perception and interpretation of the symbols in our culture on a two-dimensional plane, the importance and aesthetic value they carry in our culture cannot be ignored. From architecture to carpets, these symbols, which penetrate into our essence, are the most beautiful art images that represent us. The contribution of technology to art has gained a universal dimension from Central Asia to this point. The developing technology enables the adaptation of cultural images to today's world by the transformation of cultural and artistic elements into a three-dimensional art form. This art form is also important in teaching our traditional values to visually impaired individuals. This study was designed to make 3D drawings of traditional symbols using computer programs, to print these designed symbols using 3D technology, to attract the attention of visually impaired students, and to leave a more lasting effect in teaching traditional symbolic values to them. The first step regarding the perceived concept in the visual perception process of the students is to feel a superficial acquisition process. By using the production method of 3D printing technologies, traditional carpet and rug symbols, which we have encountered as a visual artifact until today and have difficulty in interpreting, will be easily perceived as a 3-dimensional visual object from a two-dimensional plane. Therefore, a 3D object design leaves a high-level cognitive lasting effect. Thanks to the developing technology, these cultural art elements, which are tried to be transferred to the receiver, will be transferred to the future, and a three-dimensional art form will be achieved and permanent artistic metacognition will be created in the students. There are no scientific publications or visual studies on transferring our symbols, which are one of our cultural values, to future generations using 3D printing technologies and teaching these values to visually impaired students. In this respect, our study is the first of its kind.
