Altered Access: Flashlight Project
Presented in parallel with the 2023 Wasserman Forum: Altered Access, Flashlight Project (FP) by Liza Sylvestre with Christopher Jones addresses a need to reconfigure conversation models in order to consider individuals with differing levels of sensory ability.
FP is interested in how exploring the intersection of learned systems of body and language disrupts systems of normativity. Participants come away from an FP workshop questioning normative modes of communication design and pay specific attention to the demarcation between the private and social body, predicated upon compulsory able-bodiedness. How are subjectivities shaped by systems of meaning and access? How can they be used to create space for others?
Exact times and registration forthcoming.
