Investigating Normal: Disability, Technology and Engineering by Sara Hendren

“‘Every day every body is at odds with the built environment.” This…is about those odds, those ‘mis-fits,” and the ways designers might open up space for the reality of interdependent life…

…Five years ago, Sara gave a talk about her work that remains one of my favorites, ever, on any subject. There’s the kind of talk where you find yourself nodding along, engaged, agreeable; those are fine. There’s another kind of talk where you find yourself tingling, aware of electricity rippling across the surface of your brain; this is that other kind.
