The purpose of these kinds of collaborations is to create opportunities for the creation of art borne from those who are differently abled.
There is under representation and lack of opportunities for disabled-led work. These kinds of work not only provide artists from all backgrounds to explore their craft, but by forming such collaborations, we hope to instill respect, understanding and empathy for those deemed by the society as disabled when in fact they are not. We believe long term solutions, inclusiveness and conversations start through understanding and empathy.
Not limited to just the deaf, SKY KAVE is actively exploring opportunities with different communities from the blind to ASD families where our perspectives and our own senses are challenged and explored. Due to the “open source” nature of SKY KAVE, all tech and developmental research conducted is made available to anyone who feels this could be useful to work with any community.
As SKY KAVE progresses and more collaborations are formed, we hope that this work goes beyond the initial phase and concept and that other artists are able to collaborate with us to create relevant and meaningful content for SKY KAVE. By pushing this project into other territories and with each new city that SKY KAVE travels to, it becomes a platform and opportunity to form more collaborations and create new works with artists from that city.
SKY KAVE then becomes a collective effort, using the tech and resources that the installation provides to put forth new perspectives and shared personal experiences. SKY KAVE becomes a traveling catalog of all these unique and different perspectives from around the world.
