this work, audiences can experience alternative sensory modes as a process of
re-sensitization to stimuli than they currently diminish or neglect. This makes
disability embodiment agential rather than passively waiting for supports to
navigate the world as able-bodied people do. Cachia applies the theoretical
framework of disability materialism offered by disability studies scholars
David T. Mitchell and Sharon L. Snyder, along with the work of modernist
designer, typographer and architect Herbert Bayer and his exhibition design
principles dedicated to expanding human fields of vision.
