Molly Joyce: “Cure”

Perspective is an ongoing project featuring disabled interviewees responding to what access, care, interdependence, and more means to them.

The project began in a 2019-20 fellowship at Halcyon Arts Lab in Washington, DC, during which legendary disability activist Judith Heumann asked why I refer to my left hand as “weak.” I have an impaired left hand from a previous car accident, and this question motivated a larger rethinking of weakness and further terms, specifically asking what these terms mean to interviewees across a range of disabilities, experiences, and more.
