From a distance, the viewer sees a stark image of a wheelchair. A closer look reveals the chair is comprised of many different types of wheelchairs and mobility equipment. As you look past the chair, you see the diverse talents, interests, and personalities of the wheelchair owners. The piece invites the viewer to see beyond the chair; to recognize each individual as a unique and wonderful creation, who cannot be defined by a diagnosis.

This image was created communally by the members of Harbor House, a home of 36 adults with severe multiple impairments. A whopping 15,000 photos make up the mosaic.
