Visual Chaos in 2003 – A Reflection

Here is an old studio shot from 2003. This image “is” the art and functioned as an installation piece for a mid-semester critique with the graduate committee. I was about to complete my MFA in New Media, Sculpture & Installation from LIU a semester later. A lot of these installations were clearly my visual attempts to show what it “looks like” when one cant hear but is desperately struggling and trying to.

The installations from this whole era were a first attempt at grappling with my disability as a means of advocating for myself and trying to express years of repression. 

These were good times as I felt a great freedom and the emerging of a new platform for expression with my work.
