Deafness is a major part of my life and identity, and living in the Hearing World is demanding. Understanding verbal communication is one of the main obstacles, especially when there's background noise or lips being covered. It becomes a greater challenge to understand what is being said.

Within the deaf context, the overall objective of this project is to visually express the limitations of gathering information when looking at pictures that have obstacles in the frame however, it is also a valid part of the 'bigger picture'.

My images are intended to depict difficulties of viewing as they are obscured by a visual barrier to hinder the overall frame. With the idea of information being obscured, it can metaphorically reflect the difficulties deaf people face in the 'Hearing World'. You get the picture but perhaps not the whole picture.
