Magali Duzant’s interdisciplinary work fuses the poetics of perception with a scientific approach to relating the lived experience. In this installation, Duzant illuminates the power of gesture to serve as a universal language. The text, an American Sign Language translation of an excerpt from Walt Whitman’s poem “Crossing Brooklyn Ferry,” underscores the possibility of human connection through shared experience. To translate the poem, Duzant created an archive of hands using different hands for each letter, many of them belonging to local artists who were first-time signers. As a result, each hand forms a different version of the letter it portrays, personalizing the interpretations of the universal gestures
