Deaf since the age of ten, Joseph Grigely essentially focuses on the art of conversation, exploring issues of communication and language. Blueberry Surprise consists of one continuous text of 45000 words, written by those to whom the artist spoke. Each change of color (red, orange and black) signifies the switch to "a new voice talking", always unknown characters.
