Additional contexts of the installation

concept design for a cable cover weave. Long pieces are tied, braided, and knotted together, forming a pattern resembling a mesh fence or fishing net.

example of the hands: lenght around 100cm

1.Message to you is an installation consisting of obiects – hands crafted from paper mache along with light bulbs. Each hand is autonomous, totaling nine, and the entire piece is suspended on another element of the installation – a woven grid made of electrical cable covers.

 

2.These hands loosely create various gestures, representing an internal language and an attempt at communication. Symbolically, these hands embody the hands of many individuals, suspended on a large grid. On one side, this grid serves as a metaphorical fence, enclosing something from something else, seemingly impassable. Light bulbs are placed on the fingertips, continuously glowing with light. These hands convey information through an unintelligible message of entangled hands. The hands speak as much as the mouth (head). Woven on a black grid, they form symbols, resembling marks on paper. These signs create an unclear, tangled, surrealist communication. Lights at the ends of the hands form patterns, much like constellations in the night sky. The black grid is like a sketchbook page or a school notebook.

 

3.There is an ancient practice known as chiromancy: the ability to read the future and character traits of an individual from their hands. According to this principle, the lines on our hands indicate where we have been, our experiences, and traumas. But they also show where we are going and what we are striving for.

 

4.This installation requires a dedicated space. The hands are connected to electricity, each having its own cable approximately 6 meters long. The grid woven from cable insulation is around 4-5 meters in height and 2.5-3 meters in width. The entire installation weighs approximately 25 kg and is easy to install, requiring suspension for display.
