Her featured video work manufacture comes from hand is a 2 minute long invitation to contemplate on our connection to nature.
manufacture comes from hand (2018)
Perfect shapes, chrome surface, artificial, synthetic, (un)natural. From the ground to the lab, to the table. From hand to hand. Bits coming together, becoming bigger, becoming one. Getting smaller into chunks, pieces that don’t disappear. From the table to the ground. Fractions that remain. In the ground, fruitless. The damages remain, which hand is to blame.
