Mark Wittig is inspired by the larger learning-disabled community to create artworks that comment on the learning disabled experience with language, and question the prevailing systems of education (and culture) which devalue fluencies and skills outside prevailing norms. To this end, he creates interactive artworks using photography, video and sound installations, performance art, and sculpture.
