Silent World

Visualising the Covid-19 pandemic through the eyes of Signkid, a deaf-rapper.

A creative exploration and amplification of the covid-19 pandemic as experienced through the eyes of Signkid, a deaf-rapper in London.

This musical short film creatively explores the ‘silent world’ that has intensified and deepened for D/deaf people in the course of the COVID pandemic.
It visualises the sense of isolation, fear and societal disconnection that the hearing world has been experiencing - the sort of isolation that D/deaf people experience every day.
