Deaf Culture and tidbits
Enjoy watching the 4.5-minute video art "Dead Around the Corner" (2004) out of ordinary, everyday activity into an artistic-poetic action art.
Artist statement: "My Deaf father found a wasp nest on his backyard fence. He was going to remove it. Wait a minute, I wanted to make a video narrative of his action. He agreed to collaborate in my project. To my delight, he exaggerated his spontaneous, improvising "performance"." -- literary media artist Jolanta Lapiak.
