Deaf Artist Creates Visual Art about ASL

Artist Christine Sun Kim was born deaf, and throughout her life thought that sound was only for able-hearing people. When she began making art that visually represents ASL through themes of music, everything changed. In some pieces, she visually represents the movements made in sign that mean a certain thing, like the sign for 'all day' which looks like  the outline of a hemisphere.

Watch Kim talk about ASL, the power of interpreters, and her interaction with sound and language as a Deaf person below.
