A while ago, thanks covid, I started thinking about making my work more digitally accessible. I wanted to play with sound, but not exclude a d/Deaf audience. So I started experimenting with audio and video to make poems that could hopefully cater for Deaf, hard of hearing and hearing audiences alike. This is my first finished work. Special thanks to Deaf consultant Samantha Wilson for help with this one.
an audio visual poem, soft ground explores the senses and sensation of walking on this leaf littered Earth.
Includes inbuilt text and captions for d/Deaf and hard of hearing audiences.
