Get in touch!
Forgot to post this cute photo from after @jerronherman’s performance ”Many Ways to Raise a Fist” at the Whitney!! I’m a big Jerron fan so very proud to be part of this piece in a small way via this bench as part of the set! Thank you @drwngdrwng for taking this photo to document this happy occasion! 💙 [Image description: Me beaming and sitting on the end of a blue bench that says, “I’d rather be sitting. Sit if you agree.”]
Japan continues to romance with thoughtful details: a cup and cane holder at the ATM 🌹 [Image description: A contraption to the side of an ATM with holes to hold a cup and a cane (as well as a diagram showing these uses).]
The best fake trees I’ve seen on vacation 💚 [Image description 1: A geometric, metal tree sculpture. The trunk is smooth and round with two horizontal stripes. The foliage is a sphere of small, jumbled cubes. It’s in a plaza in front of a mall. Image description 2: This one is tucked into the entry area of a building. The material is unclear but the trunk (as well as four stumps arranged around the base for seating) are made to mimic wood. The foliage is asymmetrically distributed. Each leaf(? or clump of leaves?) is depicted with a green cylinder — these are possibly shades for lights?]
Charmed by this (aspirational?) vision of the what it’s like to take medicine 🐬 [Image description: a drug store sign featuring a cartoon character smiling and casually flipping a pill into their mouth.]
I think anti-slip patches applied to tile is my love language 〰️ [Image description: a beige, brown, and cream tiled floor with patches of anti-slip material applied in a coordinated but different pattern.]
Cold water on a hot day 🤸🏼♀️ [Image description: Two pale feet blurred by water moving over river rocks.]
It has been such a pleasure collaborating with @bo_knows_jc on this workshop over the last 8 months! So grateful for all our conversations about description practices and also grateful that this work relationship has become such a fun friendship. 💐 [Image description: Bojana posed liked Vanna White in front of a screen that says “Alt-Text as Poetry.” BRIC’s walls are bright yellow so there is a nice color situation going on between the walls, the blue screen, and Bojana’s orange dress.]
Alt-Text as Poetry workshop this Friday at @bricbrooklyn! 12:30 to 2:00 and free with RSVP. This is the last public workshop @bo_knows_jc and I will be doing for a while, so if you’ve wanted to do it, this is a good time! (Though if you can’t come, we’re also working on a workbook so stay tuned for that!) 🌀 [Image description: My hand holding an index card with the workshop info in blue marker.] • Workshop accessibility info: The workshop uses a slide presentation. All content from the presentation is read aloud and described. Three of the exercises involve participants describing 8.5 x 11" images. A variety of images are provided with a range of contrast and complexity. The exercises involve writing 2–3 sentences in 5–10 minutes, but participants don't need to finish writing in order to participate in the discussion. One exercise asks participants to use an image from their own phone. If they don't have a phone or have access to images on their phone, participants describe something in the room. Large-print worksheets are provided. Participants are welcome to bring a laptop or tablet if they prefer to type or dictate. All workshop materials can be emailed ahead of time upon request by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. • Accessibility at BRIC: The main floor of BRIC House has an accessible entrance on Rockwell Place, in addition to an accessible, all-gender bathroom. The Gallery level is accessible via a wheelchair lift. To make a specific access request, or to let us know other ways we can provide you with a welcoming experience, please contact Nia I'man Smith at email@example.com or (718)683 -5986.

Excited to be collaborating with #AislinnThomas on some text drawings related to an audio description project they are doing with @walterphillipsgallery at @banffcentre 🔹 [Image description: A sketch pad open to a page that reads, “Of all possibilities, this one here, now.” The pad is resting on a gray carpet — an exciting new addition to my home!]
