In this book, I argue that work by contemporary artists who deploy variable disability topoi, including deafness, blindness, sight, mobility, and autism make audiences more sensitive to ways in which bodies take in information and process stimuli. Through engaging with this work, audiences can experience alternative sensory modes as a process of re-sensitization to stimuli than they currently diminish or neglect.
