This video essay/documentary considers the ‘neurotypical gaze’ - that is how we are viewed by neurotypical people, how this partially constructs our identity and how we look back.

Although I acknowledge various forms of neurodiversity, I will mostly approach this from an autistic angle as it is one of the lenses I look through as well as most appropriate for the setting in which this piece was initially presented.
