Elements of Learning "Dis-abilities" / Differences

Elements of Learning "Dis-abilities" / Differences

 

Elements of Learning Dis-abilities / Differences is a photographic and sound installation that encouraged viewers to talk freely about the terms, symbols, traits, features, history, and oral history of learning “dis-abilities / differences”. In part of the gallery I created a working photographic portrait studio and in the quietest spot in the gallery I recorded the oral history of the person sitting for their portrait. In this part of the gallery I installed the portraits and created three listening stations under the portraits. I an actively adding photographic portraits and oral history recordings to my ever growing archive of images and recordings to highlight the empowering potential of someone talking freely and opening about their differences.
