Deaf Artist Christine Sun Kim Creates Work That Everyone Can Hear

As a deaf artist, Christine Sun Kim pushes boundaries in the art world by working with sound. A painter for years, she turned her attention to this medium that was once out of her reach after stumbling into a gallery devoid of objects and simply filled with sounds. With a new appreciation for this sense she lacked, Christine Sun Kim proceeded to unlearn 'sound etiquette' and reclaim 'sound ownership,' as written on her website.

Christine Sun Kim achieves this by creating sounds without looking at people. She writes about the past, "[W]henever I make a sound, I would become very concerned with people surrounding me because their reactions inform me to the existence of sound. To me, that is their ownership." She relies on technology to enable her artistic expression.
