Description about the painting:

Day 19, 31 Days in March Project

This painting is about Cochlear Implants on Deaf Babies/Deaf Children. The white words on the center of the painting says "Dots equal the number of Deaf children who can now hear because of CI." The colored dots represent Deaf babies and children have cochlear implants. The black dots represent the true facts on what's been happening behind CI businesses and how that affect the Deaf community. The black dots also refer to "black holes," meaning they are deceived by, destroyed by, and so on. There is a hidden message in the painting.
In the past, there were 12 deaths. (see image no. 2)
