Deaf Awareness and Disability Visibility: Face Masks by Jenny Meehan

Yes, an extra post, as normally I post only every two months!

With so many exhibitions cancelled, I have a little bit more time, so I am doing what I enjoy and writing another journal post! It’s likely I will put my journal posts on hold for a while, as I am using this time as a time of focusing on facemask designs, including many designs to help increase deaf awareness, plus providing an option and more choice for those who find communications made harder due to mass masking in the community.

While I am mostly involved in Fine Art, my practice is eclectic and I enjoy design work.  I’m going to ramble on down one track now, as my most recent project is in the forefront of my mind.

Here’s a link to one example!

I add designs to my Deaf/deaf/Hard of Hearing Face Mask Collection every few weeks, so do take a look at the latest new designs!

I also have many patterned Reusable Face Mask designs on my Redbubble profile too, so take a look at those too!

 

If you are here to look at a wider overview of my Fine Art, then scroll on down to the various past posts to get a wider overview. The MENU tab shows the four pages of this journal, two of which are dedicated to my knee replacement journey and the other two contact pages. 

As this is a wordpress blog, you can locate the stream of my posts in reverse chronological order by scrolling downwards, or take a pot luck approach by using the SEARCH box.  I don’t currently have a website, apart from my old one, jamartlondon.com, as that’s something I plan to update next year. If you scroll right down to the bottom, There is s RECENT POSTS section where you can pick a recent stream of journalling.  Pressing the SHOW FULL SITE tab is another option.

Jenny Meehan: Deaf/deaf Masks Communication Prompt Aids

 

Deaf Awareness and Disability Visibility; Face Masks for Deaf/deaf Hard of Hearing/Lipreading – Deaf Communicator Masks; An Alternative to Clear Masks -A Useful tool for Deaf/deaf/Hard of Hearing when Shopping etc.

About this Project: 

I have been very busy designing many options for reusable face masks!  Inspired by a past career as a Dental Nurse, in which I wore a surgical face mask every working day, the mask topic has always been on my interest radar, and was right back in March 2020.  I do wish we were wearing them indoors in public spaces earlier in greater numbers, but, well, we are finally here in face mask time.

This is not very good for communications though…particularly for those who are Deaf, deaf, Hard of Hearing or have special needs which mean they really do need to see your face when talking.  There are many, many ways you can help make things easier, and the most important thing is to be patient and respectful.  Ask the person you are talking to what they would like you to do to help. Different people will have different communication needs. Everyone is very different.  Some people are comfortable with you lowering your mask at distance, others may not be.  There are speech to text apps, pen and paper, good lighting, reduction of background noise, making sure  you face the person directly, re phrase and repeat if necessary.  These are just a few suggestions.

Clear Face masks, See-Through Masks, Window Masks are very popular, but may not suit every persons needs or preferences.  I feel the more choice people have the better, and so I hope my designs can be a useful resource for many Deaf/deaf hard of hearing folk, especially for those routine tasks like shopping, etc where most of the communications will be with hearing folk.  While many people lipread, its one mode of communication and lack of awareness and knowledge mean even if a deaf person is wearing a clear mask, window mask, or see-through mask, the hearing person may assume that seeing their lips alone will suffice, whereas this is not always the case at all.  A deaf/Deaf person wearing a deaf mask with a transparent front may still want someone to write something down for clarification, or prefer to use AI… There are many wonderful speech to texts Apps available.  Or to write something down may be preferable.

No group of people is identical (obvious, but we need reminding!) and so the more options people have the better.  Deaf/deaf  hard of hearing people, and anyone with hearing loss to varying degrees, encounters more difficulty with communication in our current situation of mass masking.  The wearing of barrier masks in the community is, in my opinion, very wise, but it is only a supplementary measure to distancing.  It is keeping the physical distance which is key, and for brief interactions, the guidance is currently at the time of writing this, that one metre+ for distance is sufficient.

When a deaf/Deaf Hard of hearing person, (or someone who needs others to remove their mask to aid communication for any other reason) is shopping, for example, if they request you remove your face mask to help with a brief communication, it is important that you are aware this is a perfectly reasonable, and not an “unsafe” request.  The reality is, that if you remove your face mask for someone to aid communication, it is THEM not yourself, who has more prerogative to make that decision, in relation to their own choices with respect to any risk factors.  Note.. Obviously we all have rights, and the current situation, it’s really vital to respect other peoples level of comfort and feelings and not violate those.  I write what I write with respect to the principle.  In practice, there will be people, from both positions, who are not comfortable with this option and mutual respect is key. The key is, you ask! And communicate clearly and respectfully.

I’ve created a large collection of different communication prompt/deaf awareness reusable face coverings.  Take a look at the whole collection here:

If you are not interested in my thoughts on mass masking, skip this part and shimmy down to see some of my deaf/Deaf hard of hearing, hearing loss designs.  I create a few more each week, so there are new ones appearing all the time.  This blog shows only a selection.

Please send me feedback if you find the work I have done with creating my designs for Deaf/deaf people helpful. I have also created more broader communication prompts, which could be useful for other special needs or people with different disabilities.

The very simple principle which community mass masking operates on is that the potentially helpful effects of mass masking in the community are about simple breath deflection.  Your tidal breath (when you speak or breath naturally) comes out your mouth at speed, and wearing a barrier mask deflects that breath in a way which means it doesn’t travel so far.  I do feel that talk of “filters” and “protection” and “stops the virus” have had unhelpful and misleading results when it comes to wearing face coverings in the community settings.  It is the case that I have my own experience in the past as a dental nurse help me not assume that barrier masks/surgical masks do anything more than they have ever done.  They certainly have never “stopped” viruses or respiratory infections and have never been used for the purpose either.  They are a matter of simple hygiene and, in the case of a surgical setting, they do act as a partial barrier to droplets when in close proximity.  As hygiene, they are great, but viruses are not bacteria.  Interestingly, there have been questions about their effectiveness raised many years back, but logical commonsense tells most people they are a sensible thing for surgeons, nurses, etc to wear when working close to people or in an operating theatre, for example.

It has been hard for many, with our black and white thinking, (all prone to that!) to think that either face masks “work” or they don’t.  But life is never black and white and far more nuanced.  A partial barrier, or anything which offers some help in a situation, to my mind is worth it.  Especially in the midst of a global pandemic! The problem is maybe that people ascribe more to the wearing of face coverings than actually exists, but that was a known  and predicted problem.  Unfortunately, I have seen for myself, that the wearing of face masks and face coverings does result in people not keeping an appropriate distance, but if people think they are protected by wearing them I guess that’s not surprising.  To be fair, if someone sneezed or coughed right next to you and was infectious, it would reduce the droplets you encountered.

NOTE:  I am sharing my own perspectives here.  I am not, and do not claim to be an expert of any kind, and the reality is, that with Covid-19 we are in unknown territory.  Airborne transmission was frequently thought irrelevant at the outset… that has changed. I have based my approach on my own experiences and general interests. Right from the outset, my thinking was largely coloured by  previous (still mysterious!) influenza A examples of research,  and the tidal breath matter has been something which I have thought key.  Yet it is also the case that disagreement over virus transmission has ALWAYS been present.  With so far encountered viruses, there are conflicting views and results.   We may not like conflicting information, views,  and grey areas in the midst of a global pandemic, but this is something we need to accept, for our own mental well being.

Follow the Government guidelines for good hygiene and as the research develops things may change.  Wearing barrier face coverings and face masks is prudent and considerate in the middle of a global pandemic!

Some Examples of Masks for Deaf/deaf/Lipreaders/Hard of Hearing/Special Needs and Hidden Disabilities

Disability Awareness and Disability Visibility/Communication Prompt Face Masks Designed by Jenny Meehan Summer 2020 of Coronavirus Pandemic

Due to my own experience of what is often termed “hidden disability” during the most difficult phase of my trauma recovery journey and other disability (ie not being able to walk for more than ten minutes with a stick for just over a year prior to my knee replacement), plus the osteoarthritis which is still often quite a big pain, (though not in my new knee!) an interest in disabilities has emerged in my work.  Inclusive art is a key value, and to use my design skills to help others in creative visual ways is very exciting to me. I think taking part in the shape open last year helped too. https://www.shapearts.org.uk/blog/shape-open-2019-artists-announced

My design for a new international symbol of access is probably something which will never get any further than the publication in the Shape Open Catalogue, because there are huge amounts of hoops and legislation to do something like change the International Symbol of Access.  There are so many countries and organisations involved.  However, what I have been able to do is put my design hat on and come up with lots of options which I hope will act as communication prompts for people in certain situations.  Now we are wearing masks more of the time, to put things on a mask to help may be a good option for some people.  I have also ensured that many of my inclusive designs are available on other accessories and clothing for those who cannot wear a mask themselves.

I hope you like looking at these designs.  The are all ©Jenny Meehan

I use the approx 25% artist margin I get (when all deductions taken by redbubble for the manufacture, etc) to help buy materials for my fine art practice.  I have found over the years that being a fine artist is a challenge to sustain, but I do my best to try and sustain the creative vision and the work I do, basically because I believe wholeheartedly that visual art and all the arts are essential to good quality of life, health, and to an imaginative and vibrant culture.

I do not operate on a profit making basis. Any financial benefits received from this project feed straight into my fine art fund and help me buy what I need to continue my focus as a fine artist.

My design work is put on Redbubble.com who manufacture the products.  They are a profit making business, but the benefit to me is that they produce excellent quality products and do all the work post my design and art working. I get an artist margin which helps me a bit.  There are literally thousands of artists and designers on redbubble.  I am just one.  So if my designs are useful to you, please let me know because it’s always a great encouragement. Thanks!

I won’t know who buys my Deaf/deaf/Lipreading /Hard of Hearing products as the identity of buyers is not revealed to me. If you leave me a bubblemail message on Redbubble you need to be logged in for me to answer it.  Any questions about delivery, ect need to go to Redbubble, not me, as it is them who are actually selling the product to you.

A good scheme they are doing at this current time is donating one mask to a charity for each one you buy.  More info on the redbubble website. They also run various discounts and promotions if you are registered with them.

Alternatives to Clear Face Masks /Transparent Window Masks /Lipreading Face Masks for Deaf/deaf/Hard of Hearing People.

Useful for shopping etc and other situations where you are out and about with hearing people who need more educating and awareness!

Hopefully Communication Prompt/Disability Visibility Face Masks can be a useful tool for us all!

 

Now I’ve posted loads of images as examples, but since doing so I have added more designs, so this is simply a taster!

I’ve created a large collection of different communication prompt/deaf awareness reusable face coverings.  Take a look at the whole collection here:

Here are some more examples.  Being a bit lazy and just showing screenshots.  Reason being I have spent so much time on this project that I seriously need to get into my studio tent and get on with some visual experiments I am busy with in there…!

I often do my exercises, which I need to do for my joints each morning and think up ideas for different designs while doing my exercises!

It’s a shame the masks have ear loops…I know these are not good (useless!) for many people.   I think problems could be got around by doing what I do with my home made face covering…. a large elastic band and safety pins, works well and then the mask can go around the back of your head.  You can adjust the elasticity depending on where you pin the elastic bands (if a fabric face covering.

With the ear loop masks, I think if you had a big elastic band you could knot it round one loop and then use the pin on the other. Or just loop a large elastic band around the ear loops and join it with one safety pin.  Easy to remove when you need to wash your face mask. I am really sorry there are no other options, but I don’t actually manufacture the face masks, just create the graphic designs!

https://www.redbubble.com/people/jennyjimjams/explore

The designs for Deaf, deaf, hard of hearing I have shown you here are some of the most recent ones, but I have designed a vast landscape of options, with many variations, including some with distancing prompts and reminders, some with specific reference to lipreading and others with none, some suggesting that the other person lowers their mask when asked, and others which just ask the other person to lower their mask automatically.  Some include “please” and other such niceties, others are just straight to the point.  I have consulted many people on the various issues which are encountered by Deaf, deaf and hard of hearing folk.  Not so much on the other reasons why people find communications adversely affected by face masks and face coverings.  I am open to being educated, so please do feel free to let me have constructive critical suggestions and feedback.  Very welcome.

 

There are exemptions to the new rules for children under 11, those with disabilities or certain health conditions, such as respiratory or cognitive impairments that make it difficult for them to wear a face covering.

There is a card you can print out from the government’s website, to show exception if  wished, but stressed people would not be expected to carry proof of an exemption.

Masks will not be mandatory in indoor venues that have other safety measures in place, including:

  • Eat-in restaurants
  • Pubs
  • Hairdressers and salons
  • Gyms and leisure centres
  • Cinemas, concert halls and theatres
  • Visitor attractions such as museums
  • Libraries

It’s worth noting that it’s perfectly reasonable for you to ask someone to remove their mask (at distance of min 1 metre advisable) if this is needed by you to aid communication.  People have different comfort levels and emotions can run high as people are  subject to various fears, and may have many different reasons to feel they want two people to wear face coverings, even if in a non medical setting for brief interactions, so worth bearing that in mind.  If someone is not comfortable, then they could used a visor, a transparent screen, or a face mask with a transparent window.

This is really important:

You can lower or remove a face mask or face covering:

if speaking with people who rely on lip reading, facial expressions and clear sound. Some may ask you, either verbally or in writing, to remove a covering to help with communication

It’s really important for people to keep their distance! Rather than whip your face mask or face covering down, ask first if the person wants that!

This also really important:

“In settings where face coverings are required in England, there are some circumstances, for health, age or equality reasons, where people are not expected to wear face coverings. Please be mindful and respectful of such circumstances, noting that some people are less able to wear face coverings, and that the reasons for this may not be visible to others.”

I have designed many other designs, hopefully suited to different needs, preferences and situations.  I hope they help!
