ARTIST STATEMENT


ARTIST STATEMENT

So often we find ourselves trapped in our own ways of thinking, and we hope this piece can help us step into the shoes of another person with a unique and beautiful story to tell. As Henry narrates his journey, you are exposed to a new perspective on disability, communication, and connection through technology. 

His story is a powerful illustration of how technology can expand the world for individuals with disabilities, the importance of accessibility for all, and challenges us to imagine creative and positive potentials for the future.
