Over the Mountain, American Sign Language (ASL)

By Raine Hamilton

What is art before it finds its maker? Over the Mountain imagines the spirit of different works of art, coming over the mountain to the valley of makers below. Performed here by American Sign Language (ASL) artist Joanna Hawkins, Over the Mountain is expressed in visual poetry.
