Does Listening to Bullsh*t Make You Deaf?

Quite possibly.

At least, that was Adria Petty’s theory when her ears went on strike after a severe cold.

In effort to express herself during this oddly isolated twilight-zone time, she made the black and white NU6, which Stephen Jess helped her edit.

“It is a surreal poem about the experience I was having at that time. I felt certain at the end that the reason my ears gave up on me was because they had been listening to far too much bullshit in the past months, and, quite possibly, the entire lifetime I had experienced up to that time. So I tried to see the beauty and the irony in it, and share it.”

Watch it with your own deaf eyes and read more of her thoughts behind the project at Bullet.
