Ruaridh was an intern shadowing Christopher Sacre at Deaf Action, Edinburgh:
 ‘As an artist my perspective is about timelines and responses to an interpreter and the responses to the visual information delivered. If there is information missing within the interpretation, then the message is not clear and I’m not sure if I understand the full meaning of the information being given to me. I equate this to different colour schemes. When deaf people developed work in the workshops they picked colours that they felt connected to. If they are angry they will pick colours that show their disconnection or anger, such as the colour red.
There are companies that use black and red and that can be negative. They could use blue as a natural and calming colour, or positive colours such as yellow or green. This is based on 4 sections of the colour wheel and the full colour palate’
