The artwork titled So Awful, So Good.  This work is to reflect the society’s perception of American’s way of life views using modes of American Sign Language (ASL).   There are subliminal meanings behind this concept using similar signs with different movement directions giving two completely different meanings.  Using our natural acquisition to sign structure; this expression affords us the opportunity to have lively debates about the messages.  As shown on the artwork, one would debate that America, our country is becoming a terrible country.  While another person would share a rebuttal that America is amazing.  If not for ASL, would you be able to have clear dispute about this topic’s symbolism?  Think about it.
