Sensorineural is a sculptural installation inspired by artist Kelsie Balehowsky’s son who was born with sensorineural hearing loss. This site-specific sculpture consists of a large-scale, representational model of the inner ear, vinyl that activates the glass window itself, and an interactive component that explores the complications of invisible disability.
