"Signs of Compassion" at the Westport Library in Westport, Connecticut.
"Welcome to a poem about compassion by Emily Dickinson.
It is celebrated here through the visual poetry of American Sign Language (ASL) by members of the community - a visual chorus of our neighbors, responding with their hands, to a timely need for compassion.
Nothing good has ever come from clenched fists. It is only with open hands that true compassion, connections and communications become possible." Miggs Burroughs
The poem is told through Lenticular Photography of individual people using sign language for the words of the poem.
Lenticular allows two images to be embedded into each frame and changes from one image to another as the viewer walks by the photo.
Here is Miggs discussing inspiration for the exhibit.
