Takeshi Hosaka - Room Room (2011)

The residents of Hosaka’s Room Room are a deaf couple and their two hearing-able children. The windows in its walls and ceilings serve as means of easy communication and visibility among the family. The children sometimes drop small toys attached to strings to gain their parents’ attention from the second floor down to the first and Mom and Dad can sign to each other from separate rooms.

Got a Girl Crush On: Christine Sun Kim, Performance Artist

“Deaf from birth, Kim turned to using sound as a medium during an artist residency in Berlin in 2008, and has since developed a practice of lo-fi experimentation that aims to re-appropriate sound by translating it into movement and vision.”

A stunning video portrait by Todd Selby of performance artist Christine Sun Kim.

Interesting work and a well-made video portrait.
