In this special edition of Art Signs, Deaf collaborators from Motion Light Lab (ML2) at Gallaudet University lead an hour-long American Sign Language (ASL) tour of the exhibition Musical Thinking: New Video Art and Sonic Strategies, focusing on the  haptics and captions developed in partnership with ML2. The tour and discussion engage with selected artworks  from a d/Deaf perspective. Voice interpretation is provided for hearing participants.
