Christine Sun Kim has been deaf since she was born. She’s been an artist ever since.
The Brooklyn-based TED fellow has travelled around the world making art that not only causes participants to be more aware of the way they hear, but also teaches them the mastered science of actively listening. She’s experimented in sonic sound, the physicality of sign language, and other various forms of “reclaiming” sound – a medium she does not have direct access to.
As a Lincoln Reimagine Project honoree, she’ll set up a walk-able art installation that employs the observer as a moving instrument. Her idea is to create a direct connection between movement and listening, causing attendees to be more aware of the way they hear.
