Who Cares If I’m Deaf…….
While taking a hot bath, I was looking at my burnt thumb (I burnt it on a hot plate of steak fajitas at a Casa Maria Mexican restaurant last night) and had a random thought….. “who cares if I’m Deaf, my thumb is burnt!”
I’ve been really trying to think of an interesting art project related to deafness and whatnot. That’s it! I will try to create a series of photos over time that relate to my life and being Deaf in it. I can always see all those “empathetic eyes” looking at me in this hearing run world and it just annoys me.
I almost burnt my fucking thumb off! Who cares if I’m deaf !?
“who cares if i’m Deaf, my thumb is burnt!”
So of course, the next thing – I’m looking into the mirror after getting out the tub.
I see a pimple (FYI – I rarely get them!) and I’m like, “who cares if i’m Deaf, i have a pimple on my face!”
hence the following photograph……
“who cares if i’m Deaf, i have a pimple on my face!”
This art project is going to be interesting. I look forward to sharing. I want these occaisons to happen randomly, and not be “overthought” so patience is a virtue in this adventure!
Have a great day!
