Hands are a fascinating part of the anatomy. They play such a large part in how we interface with the
world, how we express ourselves, how we create, how we make love, and so on. One reason I recreate anatomy
is to highlight my respect for it, this piece highlights some of that regard but tweaks it with a twine
theme I've only explored in one other piece, Torso 005.
The twine is the inescapability of those impressions. You make a move and the twine moves, your motions
are observed and tracked no matter how you may try to move or change. It's not unlike a spider's web,
any movement notifies the predators of what you are doing.
The bobbins are the focal points, the things that matter in your life indirect of the pins that bind
you and the twine that monitors you, they leverage the pain against you and maintain the pressure.
