No Body Left Behind
by Emily Tironi
Click here for the ASL interpreted video.
[Video Description: The video starts with a title card featuring a dark blue background. At the top is The Disability Collective logo. To the left is the No Body Left Behind graphic. Beside that are the words "No Body Left Behind by Emily Tironi". Underneath is "thedisabilitycollective.com". All text is in white. The video then fades into the same dark blue background from earlier. In the left corner is The Disability Collective logo in white. Below that is the graphic for No Body Left Behind. On the right is a photo of Emily, a 26 year old woman smiling with brown short hair. She is sitting in an office chair with glue brush in hand at a table with a collage piece on it. A window is behind her. An audio wave in white plays overtop her photo as she speaks. After she finishes speaking, this fades into a video featuring Emily's collages (for Image Descriptions of each collage, please visit our website). This then fades into the end card, featuring the same dark blue background, the No Body Behind Logo in the middle, the TDC logo on top, and "thedisabilitycollective.com" at the bottom]
EMILY TIRONI (she/her)
Emily Tironi is a disabled mixed media collage artist who lives and works in Cambridge, NY. Emily went to college for Media Arts and Disability Studies and used both and her experience as a person with a disability to create mixed media collages. Her work focuses on disability rights, and representation. She had her first solo show in 2020 at Southern Vermont Arts Center and was published in Kolaj Magazine. During the pandemic, she participated in several virtual residencies and exhibitions.
No Body Left Behind is an online campaign centred around the disabled community’s concerns regarding the lifting of COVID-19 restrictions, including mask and vaccine mandates. We hope that this campaign will raise awareness around those who are being left behind as the world returns to “normal”.
We are currently raising money to go directly towards paying the artists and Deaf Interpreters who are featured as part of this project. We are relying solely on donations from our incredibly community to support this project!
