Playing the Deaf Card

Playing the Deaf Card, detailPlaying the Deaf Card, detail

Inside box:  hearing aid batteries, tarot card, computer print, leather, dried lynx ears.

Inspired by my legal deafness.  I used to mention my hearing impairment comfortably and offhandedly, to let people know I wasn’t ignoring them, on drugs or a complete dummy.  In recent years it has become so politically loaded that I now uncomfortably and only after much thought mention it, weighing whether it’s worth it or not to Play the Deaf Card.

“The consolation of deaf people is to read, and sometimes to scribble.”
