we interrupt our disappearance (2018)

We interrupt our disappearance,     2018

This project was part of the Shape Arts ‘Ghost in the Machine’ at the Tate Exchange. 1 – 4th March 2018.  This piece was inspired by the history of Martha’s Vineyard, an island in Massachusetts, where a high incidence of hereditary deafness on the island led to both hearing and deaf people using sign language to communicate with each other. The project was the beginning of me making sense of my own deafness and my reflections on that.
