Accessibility features such as closed captioning and audio description animate the regulated body known as Sample 01, rather than translate it for an imagined disabled body that is often assumed to be white, cis, sane, and heteronormative. This work envisions possibilities that lie beyond compliance, rejecting neoliberal checklists and minimum diversity standards.


Image Description: A hand wearing a blue medical glove with fingernails and knuckles that have been drawn on the glove with Sharpie. There are two strings of closed captions running at the top: one says, in capital letters enclosed in square brackets, "Your name is Sample 0000001." The other caption appears just below the first in hand-written style text that says "you were hot red tail lights."
