She Speaks For Herself

When I was curating the exhibition this year, I considered doing a type of virtual reality room, with autistic people designing sensory types of areas so the "language" of autism could be experienced by those who do "not speak" autistic. I still think it could be an interesting project, with contributions like the one below.

When I saw this video recently, I thought it was brilliantly executed -- bridging that ever imaginary divide between what we believe autism to be and what is. In My Language is not only intelligent, it is beautiful to watch.
