Digital hands caress the motionless human bodies.

Film notes

In my video work Blind Hands I used a body as a screen to project digital images on. I dedicated this work to one the human senses I consider in this era disappearing and that would be the sense of touch.
The growth of technology and overcoming digitization made an effort to develop a substitute and to please human need for touch. What I have in mind are sensitive displays and other forms of interactive devices. What I try to analyze is the evolution of communication that is reaching towards digitized forms. And I want to suppose the question in what senses is it false? Personally, I find communication exceeded but unable to take place of the knowledge that we receive under the favor of human touch.
In this work I placed human body to be the source of exploration. In the state of freezing, with the lack of movement, human figures appear as objects. Breathing remains the only sign of life. The exploring subjects are digital hands. Whether they are seductive or caress, they appear and disappear in the cycles of mechanical repetitions. Therefore, I named them Blind.
