The Hands. 2011. Six b/w photographs, hand printing. 18 × 24 cm each. Courtesy of the artist

This project is a series of photos of different people’s hands. The hands have small signs and phrases on them, which serve as reminders of something important and at the same time mundane. The encryptions look like tattoos or even scars, and their meanings are known only to their owners. They were created to exist for a single day, and therefore represent the imprint of everyday life. As such, they are contrasted with gestures of human hands that are not visually related to any time period.
