The Aphasia Poetry Club

A cinematic-scale three-channel video installation narrated by three individuals who have aphasia, a neurological condition caused by damage to the language centers of the brain. Aphasics struggle to understand and produce language, even though their personalities and intellects are often unaffected. As they share their thoughts and stories, their words trigger elaborate arrangements of character animation, still photographs, and live action footage.
