varies

Composed of forty-four hand-made clay hands covered in hand-sewn felt, each hand is essentially a custom made glove. The hands, either solo or collaboratively, make gestures approximating each letter of the English alphabet in a multitude of human skin tones. Letters are seemingly benign or even invisible depending on where you reside. Letters, like words, wield intense power depending on one’s access to them. They are the key to knowledge, freedom and social mobility. Knowledge, then, is a political tool relating to class, ethnicity and privilege. In these times, it is all the more relevant.
