Clock-Head Butterfly

Abstract

The standard clock has hands, which are necessary to tell time. If you remove them, then the knowledge of time is removed. The same applies to the Deaf community. If you remove sign language, then knowledge of the world is removed. By giving them access to a bilingual culture in ASL, Deaf people are given wings, life, color, and freedom.
