Why do I use my hand as a symbol?
I think its about touching. My hand says 'touch' as well as 'think'.
It says 'feel' as well as 'analyze'.
This piece is saying DO BOTH.
The viewer AND the maker - do both. Hand stitching helps to connect the mind and the body. Touching is the act that crosses the gap between the object and the mind. Hand stitching is the act that allows the maker to think.


  1. I Love this..the idea and the image and the work.
