How able-bodied people feel when they see a visibly disabled body

I have identified 4 main negative reactions to the visibly disabled body

  • Pity

*Inspiration Porn

*monstrous

*Sexless/Genderless

I want to keep exploring how I can own the otherness and allow that to be a source of power.

I am looking at extreme sculptural costume to achieve this. I’m taking inspiration from the movement of Jack Webb and Liz Aggis and the costumes of Leigh Bowery and Lady Gaga
