MY INTERVIEW with artist Chelle Destefano was one of the most remarkable I have ever been a part of. I have just come away from the most remarkable interview I have ever been a part. Remarkable for two reasons.
The first is that it took place through two AUSLAN interpreters who not only translated the sign language of profoundly deaf Chelle Destefano but also relayed her passion. As much as I tried to understand how the minimalistic gestures of Chelle could be interpreted into full sentences with complex words full of expression I failed.
