For most people, human communication is something often taken for granted, especially if they’re extroverts. Expression and communication comes easily to them, barely needing more than a few well put together sentences.
I’ve never been much of an extrovert and my personality has shaped the way I view human communication. In place of words, a careful captured picture of a careless wave of the hand is how I express nonchalance; the nuances of body movement and what these subtleties convey.
With the use of images, short clips and story writing, I intend to tell a story of communication between Nigerians and find the disparity across the cities. This I will do by capturing the human body’s reactions to a range of events; from the mundane to the most severe and to those which leave lasting scars.
Away from the introverted and extroverted personalities, I want to also express how body parts or a lack of them affect communication. I would like to the understand the treatments in terms of concern that are shown to these ones in the various cities.
After all, if my introverted nature is a “disability” of some kind which forces me to adapt the way I communicate, how much more those with actual disabilities.
How do these disabilities; stumps, scars, an unnatural stoop of the back; affect what pattern of communication they use?
