Broomberg & Chanarin publish eye-catching A-Z in sign language
Artists Adam Broomberg and Oliver Chanarin has just released their first children’s book in collaboration with Tate. Just like any other publication targeted at a young audience, Humans and Other Animals operates mainly with pictures - but is has a good reason to do so. The book is a simple and concise A-Z in sign language, edited in a clear and straightforward manner so that even little children can grasp the point. Each page features black-and-white photographs either shot by the artists themselves or taken from the Getty imagebank, which are complemented by on-point graphics in eye-popping colours and rhyming couplets.
Broomberg & Chanarin decided to explore the topic of sign language exactly because its reliance on visuality. As such, it is a great tool for helping children to comprehend the physical world around us, while it also develops their visual capacities. The artists worked in close collaboration with both the teachers and students of the Frank Barnes School for Deaf Children, London. Their examinations strengthened them in the natural belief that the deaf are better at processing visual information, hence familiarity with their language could be beneficial for those as well who are lucky enough to use all their senses.
