“Who’s at the Party (2)?”

Alice Crawford

Whimsical sculptural figurines at a party explore communication and inclusion issues for those with low hearing.


“Who’s at the Party? – Take Two” is an exploration of the representation of Alice Crawford’s understanding of the people around her, from the bits of information she gleans from a noisy party environment; this time with the help of an assistive listening device.

Making connections is difficult; background noise interferes with conversation. Words become broken sounds, like a single vowel. Parts of words are not heard and have no meaning. Hence, conversations can be misconstrued, leading to frustration and isolation.
