Aaron Williamson is an artist and writer whose work is informed by his experience of becoming deaf and by a politicized sensibility toward disability. For the past 25 years, he has created more than 300 performances, videos, installations, and public works around the world. Williamson’s artworks are usually devised to uniquely respond to what he encounters in a given situation. He has created artworks in shopping centers, streets, public museums, and galleries, as well as in unusual places such as mountains, rivers, volcanic craters, small islands, and rooftops.
