Kuda Bux

Here is a Wikipedia entry on Kuda Bux.

I remember reading many years ago that the Soviets developed a technology that they claimed was based on study of Kuda Bux's powers, that allowed blind people to read with their fingertips.

ahah! I knew I had heard of it. I read about it in Roald Dahl's story I think.
the tv in the installation played video of Kuda Bux reading a newspaper and doing other things with his head completely covered in dough and cloth. It is a very cool installation
